Car parking will be in Black Mountain Reserve Car Park signposted (brown sign) from William Hovell Drive eastbound. Additional car parking is available along Old Caswell Drive which is the access road to the car park.
If coming westbound along William Hovell Drive there is a U-Turn place which is also signposted for Black Mountain Reserve Car Park.
From northbound traffic on Tuggeranong Parkway take the exit to West Belconnen, just past the arboretum, and follow the brown signs to the car park. Please do not attempt to take the turning from the northbound Caswell Drive/GDE directly into the car park which is shown on Google Maps.
For southbound traffic on Caswell Drive go through the Glenloch interchange and exit for Lady Denman Drive and the arboretum, turn right under the Tuggeranong Parkway toward the arboretum and then right again to head towards west Belconnen in the left hand lane. Follow the brown signs to the car park.
From the Parking area, follow signs and PINK tapes through the Caswell Dr underpass and 700 metres N along the track to the Assembly. Don’t be daunted, the climb here is only 40 m – a perfect warm-up.
The Start is a mere 700 metres and 25 m climb from the Assembly.
COURSES (length, climb)
Moderate 1 (5.4km, 220m), Moderate 2 (3.3km, 125m), Easy (2.4km, 95m), Very Easy (1.8km, 70m), and a modified training map for the Moderate 1 course.
Assembly, Start and Finish are a bit further from Parking than usual (1.5km). Allow time for the extra distance, and take everything you might need. It is recommend to be at the parking no later than 6.00pm to make the last start at 6.30 pm. Be assured, the courses will be worth the trek.
Please read NOTICES at the Assembly and Start on how to avoid disturbing KANGAROOS.
Following the hail storm on 20 January there is considerable leaf litter making some foot tracks indistinct. Please take care if looking for or following foot tracks.
