Located at the top of Genowlan Mountain in the Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area, the Genowlan Trig is in a large clearing surrounded by forest. The name Genowlan – which sounds very similar to Jenolan – is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning “high place”.
The trig has a concrete pillar with mast and vanes and was constructed in May 1984, replacing the original cairn from 1912.
There’s no views from the trig, but continue along the Citadel Spur to the south-west and there are some spectacular views.
Getting to Genowlan Trig
The Genowlan Trig is at the end of the Genowlan Mountain Trail, which is off Glen Davis Road (8.3km from the Castlereagh Highway). You can drive along the Genowlan Mountain Trail for about 2km in a 4WD before it becomes impassable – or leave your car at parking area at the bottom and walk up the steep, unsealed road.
