This pleasant walk offers some scenic views on the way to the breathtaking Golf Links Lookout. There are many steps on this worthwhile walk to one of the Blue Mountains' gems. From the lookout there are grand views across the Jamison Valley, along Narrow Neck and to Mount Solitary. A great spot to stop and enjoy the view before heading back up the stairs. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From the end of Gladstone Rd, this walk follows the 'Pool of Siloam Track' sign down the steps into the bush, passing a couple of houses (on the right). The steps lead down, passing a track (on the right) along the way. At the bottom of the steps, the walk comes to a three-way intersection (with a flat track on the right). From the intersection, this walk steps over the small timber drain and continues down the gentle hill, soon passing a chair (on the left) and then heading down a series of steps to come to an intersection and the fenced 'Golf Links Lookout'.....
