Starting from Stromlo Forest Park Carpark, Stromlo, this circuit walk explores the eastern woodlands of Stromlo Forest via various tracks, visiting Mount Stromlo and Willo Link Totem along the way. Stromlo Forest is home to a world-class multi-use facility, with the convenience of being just 15 minutes away(with a car) from the city centre. A haven for mountain bikers, Stromlo Forest Park has countless high quality MTB tracks, along with cross-country running tracks and walking tracks. The summit of Mount Stromlo will welcome you with panoramic views over western Canberra and Brindabella Range. Especially stunning at dusk and dawn, this spot can also be a great opportunity to watch for some cute little magpies. As you’re making your way back to the start, you’ll pass by the Willo Link Totem. This totem was erected in honor of James ‘Willo’ Williamson, a world champion mountain biker who was loved and respected by many. May he rest in peace. Keep in mind that the facility closes at 9PM in Daylight Savings Time, and 6PM otherwise. 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.
