Walk

Starting from Sulwood Drive, Kambah, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Taylor via Mt. Taylor Hill Climb Walking Track. Descending via the Zig Zag Track, it then follows a creek back to the start. Elevate yourself from the busy city with a peaceful but challenging hike through the woodland, and enjoy the panoramic views all over Canberra from the top. You can also birdwatch as there are lots of bird species flying above the reserve, magpies and raptors being some of them. Kangaroos and magpies may also make an appearance along the way, so hold on to your dog's leash just in case. The area tends to be busy on the weekends, so try to schedule the walk on a weekday if you want to avoid the crowd. 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.
