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. 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, including the site of an Aboriginal rock carving of a 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.
