This track soon passes under some power lines[5] then continues through the open forest[6] for about 50m to head down some rocky steps[7]. From here, the walk follows the base of the rock wall[8] to head through a long tunnel-like sandstone overhang[9][10]. Here the track leads down to cross a mossy and rocky gully[11], then heads up around the left side of a large cube boulder[12] (know as 'The Block'[13]). The walk then follows along the base of long sandstone wall[14] (on your left) for about 130m and then enters a sandstone overhang[15].

Sandstone caves Alt = 19 m
This fairly large sandstone overhang is found on the eastern side of the Lane Cove Valley. The walking track leads through the two caves that run in series, with the northern cave being larger. The lip of the overhang hangs down a bit, providing some extra protection from wind and rain. The cave also provide some shade and a cooler spot on hot days, and there are also a couple of well placed boulders forming nice seats[16].

Here the walk turns left and follows the rocky track down for 100m, then crosses a small flat timber bridge[19]. Just past the bridge, this walk turns right at the top of a smaller unfenced cliff and heads down the small gully, where the track then turns sharply left[20][21] to follow along the base of this cliff[22].

The track turns right on the other side of the bridge and leads out of the lush gully to follow the bank of the Lane Cover River[29] again for about 120m, coming to rock platform and small beach on the bank of the river[30]. Here the walk heads over the rock and follows the short section of timber boardwalk[31], where the track then leads past a small sandstone overhang[32]. About 60m later, the track crosses over a flat timber boardwalk bridge[33] and comes to a signposted three-way intersection and a 'Blue Hole' sign[34] pointing back along the track.

The track leads gently up along the side of hill for about 70m, passing an unfenced cliff to your right[41], where the track bends left to lead across a rock gully[42]. The track then leads past the 'Sydney Peppermint'[43] and 'Sandstone Gully Community'[44] information signs and across a ferny gully to find a 'Sydney Red Gum' information sign[45]. From here, the walk heads up a series of timber steps[46] to where the track suddenly widens into a mostly flat trail. This trail soon bends right and leads through the casuarina forest, past the 'Scribbly Gum' information sign[47] to an intersection (with a narrower track on your left), just before the 'Sandstone Hillslope Community' information sign[48][49].
