Long Description:
There are NO 'views' from this forgotten trig, as there is a LOT of young growth on the sandy ridge. The trig stands at a 'grand' elevation of ~80 metres, completely surrounded by trees.
Access: There is an overgrown track leading north from S29º 46.780' E153º 16.175', but I hope you are good at navigation! While there is a track for about 400 metres, you will then need to navigate yourself on the 'ridge' of sand to the east of a 'lake'.
This is a typical concrete trig for NSW, standing about 1.5 metres, with a plastic pole on top, which is bolted to a mounting plate. The black semi-circular vanes appear to have NOT been graffitied, however they are in need of a coat of paint. At least they haven't been shot-up, tho they don't have any holes punched in them, like many do. The pedestal is missing the name plate.
Right by the trig is a bronze disk State Survey Marker, unstamped of a number, and it doesn't even show up on SIX Maps NSW!
For the NEED to know, and be practiced in bush navigation, and the uncharted bush, I had rated this on GCA as D2½ / T2½.

From my log entry at TP7078: (visit link)
"Also, keep an eye out for jumping ants and other 'bities'. Otherwise it is a pleasant walk through relatively open bush along a sandy ridge past a 'lake'/swamp to the west."
