Six foot track Katoomba to Jenolan caves

The Six Foot Track was planned as a shortcut to Jenolan Caves.

The route was surveyed by William Cooper in 1884.

The first recorded passage of track from Katoomba to Jenolan was by the governor, Lord Carrington, in September 1887.

Whilst little of the original bridle track remains, the route remains open to walkers as "The Six Foot Track".

In 1937  while making a military map, Major Clews chose to apply the name Six Foot Track, referring to the original tender specification for a width of six feet. The name is said to have been in oral use, locally, for some years before.

The track was reopened in 1984, following reconstruction work. Much of the route is through World Heritage listed national park.
