Hard track
This walk from Bittangabee Bay is a magnificent way to view the coastline of Ben Boyd National Park. The low heath for much of this walk allows great views out across the ocean and across the flora of the park. The walk finishes with a longish section of service trail leading down to Pulpit Rock, where the ocean relentlessly beats against the rock shelf. Allowing more time you could return to Bittangabee Bay by retracing your steps.
