Where better to launch Capital to Coast than Stromlo Forest Park, the heart of the trail running community in Canberra. Home to the Mount Stromlo Observatory, it’s one of the few places in the world where runners and astrophysicists converge! This loop makes use of the beautiful grass running track with an up and down fire trail section in the middle that visits the base of the mountain.
