Sydney walk – Raleigh Reserve to The Gap
Today I was fortunate enough to view another beautiful slice of Sydney, partaking in a walk from Releigh Reserve,Dover Heights to The Gap (near Watsons Bay), the infamous cliff face responsible for numerous suicides.
You can see the general area in Google maps but it doesn’t show well the actual path we took.
Parts of the walk consisted of green fields and walking tracks that wedged themselves between fenced cliffs facing the ocean and multi-million dollar homes. A section of the trail required us to venture onto the residential streets, allowing us to ogle at the grand architecturally designed mansions that populated this very affluent part of Sydney.
There was a number of parks along the way for people and dogs to make use of, several lookouts and many breathtaking views. The chilly morning transformed into a pleasant sunny day that made the experience that much more enjoyable.
Here are some snaps from the walk, showing this previously unexplored part of Sydney for me. Overall I would rate this a light-medium walk at around 5-6 kilometers each way with few hills.
