Hidden away on the western side of Blackheath, Porters Pass is one of the oldest tracks in the Blue Mountains, dating back to 1888. This mystery tour takes you along the precipitous Walls Ledge, down the side of a waterfall and across Colliers Causeway. You then zigzag up Porters Pass, cut across escarpment heathland and complete your circuit through the dark and mossy Centennial Glen. This walk is actually on Council land, rather than National Park, meaning that you can bring your four-legged friend.
