Mountain 24km Walk
A nice walk, mostly on trails with spectacular views of Canberra
If you want to see the bush capital, there is no better way than to walk with others on the 24km MountainMingle.
A slightly more challenging walk than Saturday’s 21km on trails with a few hills. But your reward is the spectacular scenery and variety of landscape and vegetation you’ll be a part of.
Starting at Albert Hall, walkers will head west, around the edge of the lake, and then you are off the hard surface.
You will walk on trails through the National Arboretum, then down through the Cork Forrest, around the back of Black Mountain and down through the National Botanic Gardens and back to civilization, through Acton and then across Commonwelath Bridge to finish back at Albert Hall.
NOTE: Some Routes May Change.
Maps show the 2023 routes. All route details will be finalised in February 2024. The routes may differ slightly to avoid localised activity, such as path maintenance or public works.
