We started at the Information Center at Katoomba and intended to do a gentle, 2 hour walk, but ended up going down the Giant Staircase because we think we misinterpreted the signs and our map. Anyway, it was NOT a gentle walk; was a very strenuous one and we felt lucky we found the scenic railway to ride back up. Otherwise we would have been camping overnight in the Blue Mountains because we would not have been able to hike back up! I have now encountered several other travelers who confirm the maps and signage are confusing so it's not just my lameness. If you decide to hike from Katoomba be sure you check to make sure you're doing the hike you intend to do!
