Mt Keira Ring Track

Mt Keira, NSW
8.0 km (2.5 hrs )

After several days of rain, it was great to get outdoors again and enjoy a bushwalk. On this Saturday I tackled the Mt Keira Ring Track, with a detour to Robertson's Lookout on the Jumpers Track.

The hike through the rainforest on the slopes of Mt Keira was very nice, even if sections of the track were muddy. Although there is an change in elevation of over 200 metres, I found the track to be of moderate grade (done in a clockwise direction) compared to some of the other tracks that traverse the Illawarra escarpment. The convict built section of the road was interesting, but the highlight for me was the green rainforest that blankets the slopes of the mountain.
