High Point

Loop 3 heads out to the western side of Mt Stromlo via the northern trails and a steep climb to Echidna Gap. Once on the other side you have a long descent via Slickrock Junction to the Western edge of the Stromlo Forest Park. Plenty of re-growth makes it like riding through a tunnel at times. A fast return on the flowing single track along the northern boundary descends to the finish point at the car park. To negotiate this trail you will need a good level of fitness with the technical skills to match. The climb is demanding in places and the descent and other areas are peppered with rocks and other obstacles.

Kangaroos might be cute but weird alien looking creatures to anyone but Australians, but they present a very Australian hazard on trails.

So dry for the start of summer. My tyres were doing a lot of sliding and I wasn't even going hard.
