Hard track
Starting from Sulwood Drive, Kambah, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Taylor mostly via the Western Powerlines Fire Trail and starts descending via the Zig Zag Track. The hill, which is believed to get its name from James Taylor(a squatter), has great panoramic views of Canberra and the Brindabella Range. Serving as a green belt between the districts of Canberra, it can be a convenient way to relieve some stress. Make yourself at home and lie down, as the kangaroos accompany you on your sunbathing session. Search the skies for raptors and magpies, as they’re known to fly above the reserve. Don’t forget to bring your own water as there are no facilities provided besides seats. 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.
