The Devils Hole, Katoomba

The Devils Hole is a steep, narrow gap leading from the cliff top to the valley floor. Even though the distance of the walk is only 500m down allow at least 1 hour for the trip down. Overall, allow 3 hours return, including some exploring when you get the valley floor.

Best time to do walk is in the middle of the day in the hope that you’ll get sunlight coming in the often narrow pass. This is definitely one of the more difficult trails in the area. Not recommended after or during rain. While you can exit via the Nellies Glen track to the right at the foot of the Devil’s Hole a short trip to the left to the base of narrow Neck is worth the effort.

Return the same way.

Prior to European settlement, the Devils Hole was used by aboriginal communities as a way to and from the valley floor. OR use your Ask Roz Blue Mountains app.
