Update: signs at the northern entrances of Kama, Molonglo River Reserve, prohibit cycling. This post will be corrected. Read more here.

“Formerly Kama Nature Reserve and part of Canberra Nature Park, now incorporated into the Molonglo River Reserve: Reserve Management Plan 2019 (26 July 2019). “Cycling opportunities from casual bike rides to long, challenging rides will be provided for on the existing management tracks.” Kama Nature Reserve is on the other side of William Hovell Drive from the Pinnacle offset area. The reserve is adjacent to the Whitlam estate. Some of the management trails are quite good. There is parking on William Hovell Drive, or ride along Pipe Flat.”

I wrote a cycling summary for the Molonglo River Reserve: Reserve Management Plan 2019. The Molonglo Valley Plan for the Protection of Matters of National Environmental Significance (the NES Plan 2011) also discusses Kama. A ride review along Pipe Flat can be found here.

There are a number of internet pages on Kama, too.
