A mysterious paw print found on a dirt track in the Australian bush has led many to believe big cats are roaming the area.

Four large paw prints were found on a trail in Leura, in New South Wales's Blue Mountains on Sunday.

Blue Mountains resident Kobe Bryant was running through the bush when he spotted the human hand-sized paw prints in the dirt. 

He shared footage of his hand next to the paw prints to his Instagram page, sparking dozens of comments from people speculating where they came from. 

Some suggested a wallaby, while others believed it could have been from the mythical black panther.

Mr Bryant said that due to the recent rainfall the track was untouched.

'I thought how nice it was to be on a track with no human footprints,' Mr Bryant told Daily Mail Australia.

'We rounded the corner and I nearly fell on it because I was trying not to step on it.'

He said the tracks were each as big as his hand and ruled out the possibility of a dog because they aren't allowed in national parks.
