The bushwalk to Lloyd Trig is almost six years to the day since my last bushwalk in the Muogamarra Nature Reserve, I’m back with the kids and my father for a short afternoon walk to Lloyd Trig, and Deerubbin Lookover.
Situated in the north of Sydney, Muogamarra is only open to the public for six weekends a year. It’s also well-known for its native animals and bird-life.
Initially taking the Peats Bight Fire Trail, an old convict road, we cross some wide sandstone platforms.
A few rock platforms along the trail have Aboriginal rock carvings, including one of a large whale.
It’s only a half-hour walk to the Lloyd Trig (TS2871), named after Richard Lloyd who farmed 10 acres in the area.
At a height of 210m, the trig point offers sweeping views over the Hawkesbury River and surrounding bush.
For even better views, continue to the spectacular Deerubbin Lookover, which offers views out to the Hawkesbury River and Barrenjoey Lighthouse in the distance.
You can return the same way, or do a slightly longer loop by taking the Deerubbin Loop Walk trail back.
