Moderate track
Starting from the end of Boscombe Road, Mount Coot-tha, this circuit walk takes you to the southern foreshores of Enoggera Reservoir via the Boscombe Road Trail, South Boundary Road and the Reservoir Track. Let the constant breeze cool you off as you hike towards the scenic reservoir, only to find a gorgeous body of water that you can swim in. After the peaceful swim, remember to check out the different views of the dam as you hike along the Reservoir Track. The tracks are suitable for running and mountain biking as well, so keep an ear out for them throughout the track. Remember to take plenty of water as the area is humid and relatively hot, even in winter. Trekking poles may come in handy in steeper parts. 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.
