Starting from the car park at the end of Kersbrook Forest Road, Kersbrook, this walk takes you on a circuit within the Mount Crawford Forest Reserve via the Mary Gully, Ke36, Ke30, Ke16, Purdies, Ke21 and Ke26 tracks. You’ll be walking on fire trails with great views of the surrounding area. The Old Kersbrook Loop is marked with yellow markers and has clear signage along the way. The tracks are wide, and the gradient is mostly gentle, with some hilly sections towards the end. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
