Three Sisters Loop via Furber Steps & Echo Point to Leura Forest Circuit | Blue Mts (NSW, Australia)

Yesterday we decided to get in touch with nature & completed a mini bushwalk/hike in the Blue Mts area. We were blessed with fantastic blue skies, clear paths & a hearty meal at the end! Our starting point was at the Scenic Skyway at approximately 8am (AEST). Luckily, we brought our ski jackets as it was f*** freezing! However, it didn’t take long for us to warm up as we made our way down to the valley. We went with two other experienced & avid bushwalkers: Steve who lives & breathes nature (who I later found out competes in an annual Sydney Tower Run-Up), and Phil who is training for a 5-week stint in Nepal in a couple of months. For those who are planning a trip to the Blue Mts area, I strongly recommend doing one of these bushwalks. There are trails to suit every fitness level. For more information, visit one of the many information offices in the region, but if you’re a tourist I can already guarantee that you will most likely head straight to Echo Point …
