I have lived in the Blue Mountains for 25 years and I did not know about this walk until I came across the reviews in TripAdvisor.
When you get onto the dirt section of Mt.Hay Rd it is about 1 km to the signage telling visitors about the area.
If you drive on another 3 km and come across a small blue and white sign on the left saying Fortress Ridge.
When you pull in here you will notice a metal gate blocking off a road into the bush.
This is your walking track. The first 200 metres are the steepest you will do on the walk out to the ridge. The rest is moderate or easy.
When you get to the ridge the views are beautiful.
Great walking, nature and beautiful views. Hard to beat.
