I did the Rodriguez Pass walk from Govett's Leap end and walked to Evans Lookout, and then back to Govett's along the cliff top. Before descending to the Pass I discussed the walk with the staff at the information office near Govett's Leap. I was...More

I prefer Govett's Leap personally, however this lookout has a better view of sandstone cliffs if that is what you are interested in seeing. Doesn't get much sun in the afternoon though so can be pretty cold!

Evans Lookout offers fantastic views over the Grose Valley and the rugged mountains that border it. The Lookout is easy to access as there is a car park only a few minutes away. For bushwalkers, Evans Lookout is the place to start (or end) the...More

Well worth taking a short drive down the road and requires a super short walk to the lookout. There are several walking tracks surrounding the lookout that offer nice scenery too! Would recommend wearing joggers.

Evans lookout wasn’t far from where we stayed so went done to have a look. Plenty of parking easy to find and easy to walk to. If you have the time have a look.

This lookout is much quieter than many of the others, and no less beautiful. It is definitely worth a visit.

This is a glorious lookout, especially in the afternoon when the sandstone cliffs catch the sun. There are some excellent bushwalks along the valley edge or into the valley from here. Highly recommended

I have done Rodriguez pass a number of times from Evans Look Out. Like any long distance hike in the Blue Mountains, you need a map, a GPS device of some type, food, water and be prepared for all types of weather. Even in summer...More

The lookout was not too far, 1.4km. Out we went and we saw some beautiful views. Wow! Amazing! We saw the valley and the mountains. Even though there was some haze, it was still attractive. This was worthwhile for a 1,4km trek. Worthwhile to enjoy!
