Hard track
This walk starts from Treloar Crescent near Remembrance Nature Park, Campbell, leading mostly via the Mt Ainslie Summit Trail to the top of Mt. Ainslie and back. The concrete track goes through the woods and brings you to the Lookout, from which you can almost see the whole district. There is a handy drinking fountain at the lookout to help cool you down as you enjoy the views. You’ll probably spot kangaroos and birds along the incline, so hold onto your dog’s leash in case it wants to make some ‘friends’. You can also drive to the summit, so feel free to challenge yourself to make it there before your friends find a parking spot. Be mindful that there are unexploded ordnance on the eastern side of the Nature Reserve, so stay on track to be safe. 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.
