Although this walk (indeed, some may call it a scramble) is very steep, rocky and at times difficult to follow, Devils Hole is a dramatic and rewarding walk. Leading through a narrow cleft in the cliff walls between Boars Head Rock and Narrow Neck, the track follows a route originally used by the Gundungurra people coming up from the Megalong Valley and, much later, by miners from the Glen Shale Mine village.
