There were not many people in our mini-bus, so the driver was very nice and everyone was doing whatever he was asking to be on time to the bus. Then, he said we have more time and even it is not included in out tour package, he took us there. Breathtaking view, very nice. Thanks Ben.

I have to admit the dirt road to access Fortress Rock is longer and rougher than I would have thought from the reviews below. But we managed it in a small 2WD. After about 5 km you come to a small green sign saying 'Fortress Ridge'. The walk is not too strenuous but provides wonderful views without the crowds. Bring drinks and a picnic lunch. Shelley T's advice below was very useful on the day.

Our tour had seen the 3 sisters and the falls, and as we were leaving the national park, I saw this rock, open into the valley of beautiful hills and mountains.

I have lived in the Blue Mountains for 25 years and I did not know about this walk until I came across the reviews in TripAdvisor. When you get onto the dirt section of Mt.Hay Rd it is about 1 km to the signage telling visitors about the area. If you drive on another 3 km and come across a small blue and white sign on the left saying Fortress Ridge. When you pull in here you will notice a metal gate blocking off a road into the bush. This is your walking track. The first 200 metres are the steepest you will do on the walk out to the ridge. The rest is moderate or easy. When you get to the ridge the views are beautiful. Great walking, nature and beautiful views. Hard to beat.

This is a great walk out to fortress rock. Great views out over the southern cleared agricultural valley. But the best part of the walk is to continue down to Centennial Glenn and alongside Wall Ledge loop. Along the way you see a path heading to Porters Pass. It's worth turning down here for the 300 metres to the grotto. It's an amazing pool enclosed in a smooth rock circle grotto. Take swimmers and have a dip. Then come back up and continue the walls ledge path. Fantastic views. And you can watch the rock climbers in action. One of their fav spots in blue mountains.
