The walk takes you through open forest and features expansive views to Canberra City and Parliament House. Many of the plants are labelled and you will find interpretive signs about the biodiversity, fire ecology and soil of the area. The walk culminates at a viewing platform offering spectacular views across Lake Burley Griffin. Return is via the same path.

The trail is in the Bushland Precinct of the Gardens and is part of the local Black Mountain environment.
