Red Rocks trig walking track leads you through natural heathland across a Hawkesbury sandstone plateau. For some background, trig stations are surveying points erected for the purpose of mapping. They’re positioned in places within the line of sight of other trig stations. This means that you can be guaranteed a good view when you walk to one, and this walk is just a short, easy one to Red Rocks trig for some wonderful views of the surrounding area.
From your vantage point, gaze out over Kangaroo Valley. To the north and west you’ll be looking at Morton National Park and to the north-east is Budderoo National Park. If you bring a good topographic map and it’s a clear day, you’ll be able to identify features such as Mount Skanzi, Mount Moollattoo and Mount Carrialoo. Bring along your binoculars to view these mountains, they’ll also come in handy for birdwatching
