We investigate photonic topological states supported by the metasurface based on the triangular lattice of hexamers. It is demonstrated that the transmittance and reflectance spectra recorded for such structure allow one to extract the information about the topological properties of the metasurface photonic modes and the topological invariant in particular. Our method thus provides a technique complementary to the analysis of edge states.
