Walk the Black Mountain part of the proposed Centenary Trail

Would you like to walk along the Black Mountain part of the proposed Centenary Trail?

The walk will be led by Jean Egan. As a result of Jean’s representation to ACT Government it has been agreed that the Centenary Trail on Black Mountain will be on formed roads, with a very small part being changed. Thus any detrimental impact on the flora and fauna on Black Mountain has been minimised, but the impact of major events will no doubt need to be monitored.
