This short walk starts from, and returns to, the Carrington Park track head and winds down along the Prince Henry cliff walk to the Burrabarroo Lookout. There are great views across the Jamison valley and Leura Forest from the lookout. Being such a short walk to a great lookout, this is a great walk if you don’t have a lot of time to spare, but still want to see a great piece of the mountains.
