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

Lysterfield mountain bike trail closures

Following significant storm damage to mountain bike trails in October 2021, Parks Victoria has decided to close all Mountain Bike Trails.  The trails have been assessed to be in an ‘unsafe condition’ due to heavily degraded surface integrity, major drainage issues, tree hazards and areas of high soil instability.  

This decision has not been made lightly but is necessary in order to maintain visitor safety. Parks Victoria is working hard with its partners and volunteers to open the trails as soon as possible.  This will occur in three stages, with the first stage targeted for completion and trails opened by Tuesday 7 December.
