I led this walk, with 7 of us walking around parts of West Dunlop and West Macgregor and along some of the Bicentennial National Horse Trail and the border walk near West Belconnen Pond to an Aboriginal Archeaological site in West Macgregor. This was a MelbaShed walk

7 walked. 6 of us met at the Shed by 8.15AM & drove in 2 cars to West Dunlop car park on Toft St near West Belconnen Pond. Here we met one more. Then from around 8.30AM we walked down along the Bicentennial National Horse Trail (BNT) along the ACT border to the entry to Jarramlee Property, then continued to Gooromon Ponds Ck, then to an Aboriginal Archeaological site in West Macgregor still along the BNT. We then stopped for a short break at an area where you can look straight over Ginninderra Creek.
We then continued into West Macgregor climbing through a fence & walked east then north down to Ginninderra Ck, crossing it & then up past Jarramlee Pond and into Dunlop finishing with partial circuit of West Belconnen Pond. We finally drove to Charnwood for coffee at McDonalds. Bob was happy to get two soft served ice-creams for $1.00.
Greg was happy he has finished as it was hot & the flies were a nuisance.
Views. These were some good views out over the country side in NSW and along parts of Ginninderra Ck.
The walk was Easy-Medium walk, distance of 9.7Km, taking , mostly on dirt management trails & some grass tracks. We took around 2hrs 45mins.
