Starting from the end of Phillip Avenue(car access), Hackett, this circuit walk explores the woodlands of Mount Ainslie Nature Reserve, leading via the Hancock Road at first. As there are animals of all kinds in the reserve, this walk can be a great choice for spotting wildlife. Keep an eye out for wattlebirds, lizards, magpies. You can also spot possums if you get the timing right. Expect great views of Canberra as you make your way through the forest, especially over Woden Valley. Some inclines can be demanding and there are small rocks and loose gravel on parts of the track, so be cautious and take it slow to avoid injuries. Also 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.
