Summary: A short walk in the Muogamarra Nature Reserve to the Lloyd Trig, which offers views over the Hawkesbury River.

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.
