Starting from Frith Road, Acton, this walk takes you up to the summit of Black Mountain and back via the Black Mountain Summit Walk, doing a cute little forest loop near the top. You’ll be dazzled when you see how tall the Telstra Tower really is when you make it to the top. Don’t count out the little loop beforehand as it is also dazzling in its own way. Some hot air balloons may come into your view and add to the panoramic view from the top. Keep in mind that you can also drive to the summit, so plan accordingly. 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.
