Monthly Chronicle - - Outdoor Lifestyle - MATT MCCLEL­LAND WILLUNGA TRIG WALK - PROM­ISES TREES AND WA­TER­WAYS FOR­EVER! 40 mins, 1.4 km Re­turn mod­er­ate track

Feel like you’re on top of the world with this short walk to the high­est peak at the heart of Ku-ring-gai Chase Na­tional Park. On the sum­mit, you’ll find an old trig sta­tion and some stun­ning panoramic views. On a clear day, there are un­in­ter­rupted 180-de­gree views across large parts of the Park, in­clud­ing Pittwa­ter and the Palm Beach Light­house to the east and dis­tant glimpses of Syd­ney city on the hori­zon, far to the south. You can see trees and wa­ter­ways for­ever.

The start of the walk is sign­posted ‘Willunga Track’ on West Head Road, about 4.8km north from the in­ter­sec­tion with Gen­eral San Martin Drive. There’s a park en­try fee to drive into this part of the park. Af­ter the walk, drive to the end of West Head Road to en­joy more stun­ning views or lunch at the Res­o­lute Pic­nic Area. West Head is a spe­cial area well worth ex­plor­ing.
