(0 km) Olympian Rd to Elysian Lookout
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 111 m Time = 4 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -26 m
From Olympian Parade (opposite Balmoral Rd), this walk follows the track away from the road, keeping the white fence of the park on the right. The track heads past the 'Blue Mountains National Park' sign and through the bush, continuing down a long set of stairs. At the base of these, the walk comes to an intersection with the Prince Henry Cliff Walk (unsignposted) at 'Elysian Rock' Lookout[1].

Elysian Rock Alt = 916 m
Elysian Rock is a fenced, small, narrow lookout on a rock buttress. The floor is mostly uneven, natural sandstone and there is a bench seat with no shade. The lookout is right at the edge of the cliff and gives a great view straight across the Jamison Valley and out to Mount Solitary. Narrow Neck and the 'back' of the Three Sisters are visible on the right-hand side, and Sublime Point on the left. The lookout is along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, just west of a concrete bridge spanning a chasm and near the end of Elysian Place, Leura.
