Bradleys Creek Walk is a 14.2km, grade 3 Return hike located in Googong Foreshores ACT. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.

Summary

Starting at the Downstream Picnic Area the track initially follows a route marked by directional posts. The walk then follows management trails, skirting the northern shore to the dam before climbing steeply up the Queanbeyan escarpment to Gormans Trig. From here it is a relatively easy walk to Bradleys Creek which is typical of the steep sided creeks bisecting the escarpment. The short detour to Googong Lookout on the way provides panoramas of the northern part of the reserve and dam.
