Starting on Elliott Road opposite St Mary's Anglican Girls' School and Kevan Langdon Reserve, Trigg, this walk takes you on a circuit around Trigg Bushland Reserve. Enjoy a short suburban bushwalk at Trigg Bushland Reserve that showcases beautiful bushlands, unique wildflowers, coastal views, historical ruins and plenty of wildlife. The reserve runs through the centre of the suburb of Trigg and contains a significant pocket of remnant coastal vegetation, with a great range of native plants and lots of wildflowers in spring. There are some well-preserved historical sites on this trail that make it unique. Keep a lookout for the old cottage ruins along the way. The tracks are well established and well signposted, with lots of shady sections to give you a break from the sun. The walk is quite hilly, but the path is wide with a mostly compacted limestone surface, so it's not too challenging. Dog owners are allowed to unleash their dogs in the reserve but must keep them under supervision. Explore the unique parabolic sand dunes and take in the sights and sounds of the sea as you wander the well-maintained trails. If you time it right, you can enjoy one of Perth's incredible ocean sunsets over Trigg Beach after your walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
