Summary: The Arden Trig Station is on a spur off the Waratah Track. Great views from the trig and nearby.

The Arden Trig Station (TS638) has been significantly ‘unpiled’, with its rusty and damaged vane poking out of what remains of the rock cairn.

The sad condition of the trig station is made up by the great views: About 6km to the south another trig point can be seen – the distinctive Baha’i Temple in Ingleside.

There are even better views from a rock outcrop just beyond the trig, with almost 360-degree views over West Head, including Pittwater and the Barrenjoey Peninsula to the east.
