Time Out says

This is the kind of trail you need to prepare for: wear sturdy shoes, expect wet and dry ground, and take plenty of drinking water for those never-ending stairs. It’s exciting when you have to use stirrups to maneuver up and down rocks, or rely on fellow walkers for support as you cross uneven ground. Make a day trip of it and you’ll want to return for that first glimpse of Berowra Waters as you complete one hard uphill climb.

Once you’ve scaled the steps heading towards Berowra train station, there’s an expansive lookout point with a bench for a well earned rest. Naa Badu Lookout has spectacular views of the waters meeting at Berowra, Sams and Calna Creeks. Naa Badu means ‘see water’ in Dharug.
