5 Trigs Walking Circuit

Launceston’s Trigonometric Points Adventure

The 5 Trigs

Urban Walks with Stunning Views

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 Although their use has largely been superceded by satellites, the 5 remaining Trig Points around Greater Launceston are great way to enjoy a walking circuit.

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. With at least 5 hills to climb to reach each trig, there is over 800m of elevation, so you will certainly improve your fitness as you go!

The 5 Trigs can be completed in 3 (or more) sessions, including for private groups and as a one-day walk across 8 hours.

What to Expect

  • A surprisingly varied urban walk with numerous points of interest along the way.
  • On clear days, stunning views from the eastern and western sides of the city.
  • An appreciation of trig points wherever you might see them!

How much time does it take?

The the 5 Trigs Walking Circuit covers approximately 35km. Our one day walk does this across one 8 hour day, but it can be broken into 3 sessions for private groups.

How are the participants transported?

The participants are asked to assist with transportation during the circuit. Prior to the session, vehicles are left at the end point. The group completes the session and are driven back to the start point. Each session commences where the previous session ended.

I have an injury, can I still join?
You certainly can!  Any advice from your GP or Physio is always helpful. If you’re not sure where your fitness levels are at, contact John from Ascent Fitness and make a booking for a 1-on-1 walking fitness test.
I am pregnant. Is this walk suitable for me?
Generally, walking is OK during pregnancy.  However, we ask that you come with specific advice from your GP or Obstetrician on what is appropriate for you.
