Moderate track
Starting from the end of Hillbrook Road, Enoggera Reservoir, this walk takes you on a circuit in the diverse woodland of Enoggera Reservoir, crossing Enoggera Creek twice along the way. Expect a hike in a lively forest that is filled with wildlife and birdsong. Speaking of, try to pause and listen to the said birdsong around the creek, it becomes heavenly when combined with the burbling sound of water. The birdlife in the area is rich as you can guess, and king parrots are quite likely to show themselves. Keep an eye out for monitor lizards whilst taking in the scenery. Take care and wear grippy footwear as some parts of the track are quite slippery. 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.
