The first walk that my friends and I did in 2017 was the Lloyd Trig Walk. This was my first walk in the nature reserve. The walk provides spectacular views of Hawkesbury River and Barrenjoey Lighthouse. The walk also is along the bushes and there are plenty of opportunities to view the wild flowers. The main highlight is the aboriginal art of a whale.
