Moderate track
Starting from the car park at the end of Lindwall Place, Nicholls, this walk takes you to the top of Percival Hill, then descends to the foreshore of the pond near Barton Highway and back. Leading via the Percival Hill Fire Trail all the way through, all you need to do is follow the singular trail and enjoy the trip. The satisfying view of the fields neatly divided and harvested can be strangely soothing for some. Even if you’re not included in that group, keep going and try out the pondside view at the end. You may even spot some magpies enjoying the relaxing aura of the pond with you. Don’t forget to keep your furry companion on-leash. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
