We had fun exploring the Braeside trail. There were lots of stairs. We were walking in a tropic forest.

We eventually reached the end of the trail and we were happy that we did this trail. We found two waterfalls, nice rock formations and even cascades.

Going back was harder as we had to climb most of the stairs. But we made it! What a great hike!

This is really worthwhile to see the wonders of this trail

The Braeside walk begins about 900m from the nearest cross st. If you have confidence driving down the dirt road which is wide enough for 1 vehicle you can drive to the start of the walk. We parked on the street and walked down. The path was quite overgrown as you walk next to the creek, but there weren't heaps of people either. Its about 30mins walk to the gorgeous Barrows Lookout where you can connect to the cliff side walk to either Govetts lookout or Evans lookout. The walk just to the lookout is not too taxing and great for kids.

You can start this walk from Govett's Leap or from the road opposite Parklands Country Gardnes and Lodges. It would suit those interested in a shorter walk, particularly if arriving in Blackheath when there are only a cpuple of hours of daylight remaining. The flora is varied, and the slope gentle.

According to maps, the "Braeside Trail" is the fire access track (actually a pretty good dirt road) that makes a possible route between Blackheath and the Grand Canyon/Evans Lookout area. I can't understand why that would have an entry though, so maybe it means the Braeside Walk along Govetts Leap Brook. I used the Braeside Walk as part of the return leg of the Govetts Leap Loop. The eastern entry from the Cliff Top Walk is just west of Barrow Lookout but I missed it at first - part of the wooden sign is broken and the metal sign with info about the Braeside Walk is around the corner and facing the other way. If you go past Barrow Lookout to the steep stairs, you've missed it. Once I found it, I found a very pleasant valley, less forested and more farmlike than nearby valleys. The path was narrow and overgrown and wet at first but then opened up like the valley. Halfway along is a dam and picnic areas. All this only went on for 20 minutes though until reaching the dirt road, which is much less pleasant to walk along. From that point, it was a brisk 30 minute walk back to the station.
