Starting from Parkhill Street, Pearce, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Taylor via the Mount Taylor Zig Zag Track and back. The hill, which is believed to get its name from James Taylor(a squatter), has great panoramic views of Canberra and the Brindabella Range. You can also see the towering Telstra Tower from the top. It’s a great way to quickly escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Additionally, birdwatching can be worthwhile, as the reserve is home to various bird species such as magpies and raptors. 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.
