Traveller stumbles upon incredible hidden canyon dubbed ‘heaven on earth’

Keen adventurers are flocking to an incredible wilderness walking trail that winds through the rainforest past a series of waterfalls, swimming spots, canyons and lookouts.

The Grand Canyon Track sits in the World Heritage listed rainforest near Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, less than two hours drive east of Sydney.

Keen explorers have found secret swimming holes, caves and canyons along the walk which is lined by sandstone walls of ferns and waterfalls.

The historical trail starts from Evans Lookout which has breathtaking views sweeping over the below valley which is best seen during sunrise or sunset.

Walkers can follow a trail of stepping stones and paths that snake down and back up through the enchanting rainforest of towering gum trees, luscious greenery, bubbling creeks and trickling waterfalls.

One woman explained how she found a jaw-droppingly beautiful swimming hole with a waterfall in the canyon, which she called ‘heaven on earth’.

Trodden since 1907, the spectacular looped track is well-worn yet can be challenging for some and takes about three to four hours to complete.

Grand Canyon walking track has become a must-see for Blue Mountain visitors and tourists have been leaving five star reviews of the ‘spectacular’ spot they say ‘must be seen to be believed’.

‘My sister and I have ticked off six of the recommended walks in the Blue Mountains region and so far the Grand Canyon would have to be our favourite,’ one walker wrote.
