The Canberra Nature Park reserves seem to be endless, and the view is obstructed by the forest and hills. The management trails and paths meander their way around the hills. This network of trails and paths has grown historically. There is a surprise around every corner.

Throsby, Harrison and Franklin from Belconnen

Throsby, Gungahlin, has an excellent bike path and views of the Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve. This was an enjoyable loop ride to Throsby from Belconnen. Throsby has good bike infrastructure. The route is roundabout but along good bike paths, and all major road crossings are at signal intersections.
