Bellbird Trail and Kokoda Track
Starting from Bielby Road/Greenford Street, Chapel Hill, this return walk explores the woodland of Mount Coot-tha Reserve via the Kokoda Track and Bellbird Trail. Expect a nice quiet hike through the forest, with a challenging ascent/descent midway. You’ll be gaining around 200 metres of elevation in a relatively short part of the track, so get your calves and lungs ready. Even though it’s a short one, it’ll still give you a good wake-up call if you need it. The Kokoda Track passes by Cubberla Creek along the way, so feel free to get to the foreshore and enjoy the refreshing air around the stream. On the other hand, you can stay loyal to the designated route and time your walk/run. And if you’re still feeling energized at the top, you can cross Sir Samuel Griffith Drive and continue on the Powerful Owl Trail for a bit. The track may involve some loose rocks, so grippy footwear is recommended. 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.
