About the region

Kowen Forest

As well as being Canberra’s largest commercial pine plantation, Kowen Forest is very popular with organised recreation groups including orienteering, bush walking, running, mountain bike riding, horse riding and car rallies. Size: 4,670 ha Kowen Forest east hosts the Australian 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships and it has a strong network of trails. Following its initial design as a trail catering to beginners, the later expansion of trails has been developed with the same friendliness in mind. The parking area for Kowen Forest east is just off the Kings Highway which also accesses Sparrow Hill. Please note the campground may be closed during fire danger periods and adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain.
