Trigg Bushland Loop Walk | Dogs On The Lead | Historical Sites | Ocean Views | Compacted Paths
The Trigg Bushland Reserve Loop starts on West Coast Drive just south of Canteen & Island Market Trigg. The walk trail loops through the Trigg Bushland underneath West Coast Highway then follows West Coast Highway along to the end near the South Trigg Carpark. You will experience beautiful bushlands, historical ruins and stunning ocean views along the way. The whole walk is about 7.3km (around 2.5hours) or you can enjoy parts of the loop for a shorter walk.
We started at St Mary's (Elliott Rd entrance) and walked alongside West Coast Drive, down past the Cottage Ruins and back down to Elliott Rd a bit further down which took about 30 mins. The path is wide and compacted limestone all the way along.
We enjoyed beautiful ocean views along the way, as well as dense bushland rich in a variety of native plants. The walk is quiet hilly with both steep inclines and declines, so a moderate fitness level is required for this walk.
The Trigg Bushand Reserve Loop is well signposted so you can decide which path to take.
A unique feature of this surburban bushland trail is the preservation of some historical sites. We walked past the cottage ruins on our way back towards Elliott Road. It was a shame about the graffiti but really cool to think that these beautiful bushlands, so close to the oceans is where people lived may years ago.
It's a really pleasant walk with amazing views and lots of shady sections to give you a break from the sun.
We loved our walk along the Trigg Bushand Reserve Loop, it's amazing to have such beautiful, well maintained bushlands right in our suburbs. One day soon I hope to walk the whole trail and enjoy a meal at Canteen or Island Market afterwards, but for now we were very happy to have enjoyed this little section of the trail.
How To Get There: Either park at the South Trigg carpark and start at your chosen entry point or choose another entry point along the way
