Starting from the Uriarra East Recreation Area, ACT, this walk takes you to the riversides of Murrumbidgee and Molonglo Rivers. Visiting Shepherd’s Lookout with a side trip, the track loops back to the start. The peaceful stroll skirting Murrumbidgee River will soothe your nerves as you listen to the burbling sound of water. It will also warm you up before the rewarding climb to the lookout. You’ll come across plenty of viewpoints prior to the lookout, but the spectacular view from the top will truly be worth the effort. Throughout the walk, you may spot a kangaroo or two along with other wildlife. Snakes are pretty common in the area, try to cover your legs and feet properly. Keep in mind that the water level can rise quickly depending on how much and how long it rains, so check the forecast beforehand. Also look out for unforecasted downpours during the walk. 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.
