Trig Point Lookout Trail (Lysterfield Park, Churchill National Park)


Trig Point Lookout Trail (Lysterfield Park, Churchill National Park)

Trig Point Lookout Trail incorporates sections of steep, uneven terrain, but with rewards of spectacular views. Immerse yourself amongst the tall gum trees, native bushland and abundant wildlife to experience the true beauty of Churchill National Park as you hike to the lookout.

The return walk or ride from the Churchill Picnic Ground to Trig Point Lookout follows old aqueduct along the Stonemasons Track before opening to spectacular 360 degree views of Melbourne. This track provides opportunities for wildlife viewing as visitors often spot Eastern-grey kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas or many of the bird species that reside within the environment. Keep a close eye on the tree tops, looking out for a Powerful Owl roosting amongst the eucalypts.

Trig Point lookout is 3.4km one-way Grade 2 trail

Extended - Mountain Bike Trail Network Temporarily Closed - ALL TRAILS

With persistent heavy rainfall and strong winds over the past few months, mountain bike trails are severely water logged and have significant tree damage. Accordingly all mountain bike trails at Lysterfield Park will remain closed until further notice.

This is a necessary decision to protect the safety of visitors and maintain the integrity of the trails.
The condition of the Lysterfield Park mountain bike trails will be monitored closely and will be reopened as soon as it is safe to do so.
