A fascinating and beautiful trail for all to enjoy, the Flint and Steel Track is a 1 mi out-and-back trail that starts and ends at Flint and Steel car park, off West Head Road within the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, New South Wales.
Usually completed in around 45 mins to an hour, this wonderfully scenic and short walking trail to Flint and Steel Beach offers impressive views over to Lion Island and Broken Bay but does have a steep descent from the car park, considered to be Medium difficulty, but it should be possible for most ages and abilities if taken slowly and carefully. Caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here

Follow signs for the ‘Flint and Steel Track’ on this stunning trail that takes walkers down through grass tree and eucalypt forest, sections of health and bush, and then along a cabbage palm grove and down sandstone steps to reach the little beach, which can become very busy at weekends and during school holidays. On the way spot wallabies, and an abundance of native flora and fauna.
Drinking water is not available on this track so it’s advised to bring plenty, as well as other provisions as necessary, as well as sun protection, although there is a little shade to be found on the beach and on the trail itself. There are toilets at the Resolute picnic area not far from the car park.
A $12 AUD park entry fee applies per vehicle, per day and dogs are not allowed in NSW national parks and reserves for the protection and conservation of the park and its wildlife.
