    Notes:

    From Gordon Falls Reserve, take the track to the lookout and immediately turn left. Follow the track to the end of the picnic ground where it veers right and down the hill. There are a few unmarked tracks off to the left which lead to Gordon Rd and Lone Pine Ave.

    The track descends into a moist grotto protected by cliffs. The track to Lyrebird Dell branches left from the grotto. A short descent brings you to the Pool of Siloam and waterfall. The track continues up and south coming out at a spectaular lookout on the cliff line (Golf Link Lookout). Views over the Jamison take in the Three Sisters, Ruined Castle, Mt Solitary and, close on the left, the gully above Lindeman Falls.

    From the lookout the track branches The left branch follows the Grand Cliff Top Walk to Wentworth Falls via Leura Golf Course and The Fairmont Resort. The right crosses Lindeman creek and continues to the end of Sublime Point, coming out near the picnic shelter.

    Lyrebird Dell is a short walk from the Pool of Siloam. The track has recently been tidied up and is now easily navigable. An unmarked track leaves to the right before you reach Lyrebird Dell and leads to Spencer and Albert Sts. From Lyrbird Dell there are a couple of short tracks which explore the waterfall. The main track crosses the creek and takes you up to Lone Pine Ave. At Lone Pine Ave a right turn takes you to the Gates on Malvern Rd. A left turn takes you past the Lone Pine Memorial.
