Much of Blackheath is surrounded by the Blue Mountains National Park and significant areas of bushland and reserves. The north-east edge of town overlooks the Grose Valley which can be observed from lookouts and walking tracks towards the end of Hat Hill Road. Am easily accessible lookout is provided at the end of Govetts Leap Road where a network of walking tracks lead down the valley and along mountain streams and waterfalls.
