Time Out says

If you’re partial to a 360-degree lookout, this short and steep trail connecting up Mount Ainslie is a must. You’ll want to time your summit with sunrise or sunset to beat the heat and enjoy the best views overlooking the Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, the mountains of Namadgi National Park and beyond. If you’ve already hit your step count for the day, then you can also drive to the top of the summit with a picnic in tow.
