Bidjigal reserve is a bush walk located within the Hills Shire Council. They have a fabulous Tracks & Trails program maintaining the reserves and allowing anybody to walk through experiencing the reserve in all its glory.
They offer great free guided walks through the reserves so I recommend you check them out.
If you are like me and enjoy exploring on your own. At your own pace. Or last minute trips. I have provided some information below for you to assist with the resources provided by the Hills Shire Council.
Just to make sure you don’t get confused or lost (like I managed to).
Despite my efforts to film my entire walk through the reserve including 3 weeks worth of editing. I managed to successfully delete all the videos including the final version from my computer (even my trash bin).
I’m just going to put it out there and just say that it was one of the greatest videos I have made to date. You’ll never actually know though so go ahead and take my word for it.
Luckily I have a couple of photos and my memory to walk (pun intended) you though the experience so you can try it too.
If you haven’t yet seen the Idiots Guide to Bushwalking I recommend you check it out to better prepare for any walk you might endeavour on. You will also be able to pick up on the many mistakes I made along the way.
10 Things You Need to Know About Bidjigal Reserve Walking Track
1. You will start at the end of Mungarra Place, West Pennant Hills. There is a clear Bijigal Reserve sign at the end of this road.
2. You will be crossing some small rivers. Rocks are around to step on but tread carefully.
3. The walk brings many sounds along the way so music isn’t absolutely necessary.
4. You will be on the yellow track.
6. Although a map is provided by the hills shire council. I recommend you take your phone with google maps and review the track beforehand to ensure you’re clear on where you are throughout the walk.
7. Don’t take the red track.
8. Resist turning back, you’re more likely to get lost. Potentially you might find something awesome and it makes for a good adventure if you have the time. Getting lost can be a little stressful though. So you make the call on that one.
9. Take food and water.
10. Remember where you came in to meet the track off the street. It’s not as clear when you are leaving. Draw something on the ground like an arrow to help.
