great short trail. spectacular cliffside views of the surrounding mountains and Canberra.

Amazing view at the top, worth the hike up. Would go again in a second!

Would help if this actually existed. they're mountain biking paths only. not safe to walk

Amazing, simply beautiful

We enjoyed this trail with our 3yr old. We carried her for the first few inclines until she found her confidence; didn't take her long. We didn't get too far, keeping to a toddler pace, however we were continually enamoured by the view, birds and butterflies along the way. A great trail for families. Reinforced parts of the walk and its beauty make it a very safe and enjoyable activity for all ages and every capacity.

Longer than expected from the campsite but a good walk with a great view at the end.

Awesome view over Canberra

Love this trail and the fact you can do a loop (up via walking trail and back using the fire trail). Panoramic views over the ACT and towards Canberra & Black Mountain from the top. Amazing granite forrmations.

Great walk! not much view but challenging for me!

Great walk up to the top! Fantastic view in nights!

A decent, challenging walk up to the Telstra tower. Would recommend!

Moderate hike/walk with some steep parts & steps! Really enjoyed it, and fantastic view from the top. Didn’t take too long either, and saw some fantastic wildlife along the way.

First place I ran in the ACT and got a light dusting of snow, very technical track and steep, great workout if done in under 2 hours

Nice, easy track. It's easy to extend the walk by taking the top track half way along the loop up to the horse trail up the hill.

Nice, easy track with fantastic views

Great, steady, moderately easy and quick walk with a great vantage point at the end. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the ACT

Enjoyed this walk on a sunny and clear winter's day... expansive views from the summit. Saw almost no-one on the way up (on a week-day), but two large school groups were on the summit.

Nice trail and not to difficult, extremely easy to miss the trail and hike the 4WD track on the way up. Great views from the top

Great walked around park and good view

Look ok.. cafe very high $$$$ ...

Hard walk up and down hills .. good fun ..

Good for Geocaching

Beautiful Garden and Cafe .. make me relax and fresh air

I found this track to be quite enjoyable. The first third really gets your legs warmed up and ready to pick up the pace. It can get quite busy with other trekkers, however the majority are polite and offer words of encouragement to new comers!

I accidentally took the wrong path and ended up walking up the 4wd track, which was super easy to do & was not an easy climb! , but the walking track which I came back down was lovely! The views are amazing!!

Great little walk. We took our kids and two dogs and they loved it. it's only a short walk but, beautiful.
