THE 5 TRIGS
A Trigonometric Point (Trig Point for short) is a survey marker that is placed on a high point (hill or a mountain). Although their use has largely been superceded by satellites, the 5 remaining Trig Points around Greater Launceston are great way to enjoy a walking circuit through.
The 35km circuit around the 5 Trigs passes through old suburbs and new, passing through old easements and night cart tracks through to new subdivisions. And, with at least 5 hilltops to each, there is over 800m of elevation, so you will certainly work your fitness as you go along!
The 5 Trigs can be completed in 3 (or more) sessions, including for private groups and as a one-day walk across 8 hours.
