A simple walk rather than a hike. Views are OK amongst the antenna.

Loose surface, some steep sections, but great scenery and a beautiful little campground with a drop toilet and drinkable creek water at the finish (bookings required for campground via Parks Victoria). I ran/walked this trail with a colleague. It's rideable on a mountain bike, but there are better mountain bike trails elsewhere in the region.

A short walk with a few moderately steep sections of constructed granite steps. Manageable by kids as young as 5 but not suitable for strollers. Great views from the top (The Monolith) of Lake Catani and the Mt Buffalo National Park.

great views and easy to follow

Easy trail with beautiful views at the end to the beach and lighthouse

The Alltrails directions bring you to an ample parking lot and picnic area. We were welcomed by two kangaroos, and saw another pair near the end of the loop. Since we are from the US, that was a big deal for us. We also saw lots of birds - one looked like a red parrot. The hike is mostly flat, with one somewhat steep hill. Amazing lake views. Trail is well marked, and as another reviewer mentioned, there's a spot near the end (if you go counterclockwise) that has tall grass and the marks are hard to find. In that case, keep along (and inside) the fence and the markings eventually reappear. A couple spots had quite a few flies and grasshoppers. We brought insect repellant, and that appeared to work well. We totaled just over 15 km. Temp was in the 20 - 22C range, and we needed about 1 liter of water per person. Only saw three people on the trail (and one person on a bike on the road near the dam). Signs indicate that no dogs are allowed, but we did see some dog poop along the way.

A rather unusual type of scenery, quite interesting and easy to hike

Easy to follow markers. We did get a little lost towards the end when the markers cut through the tree line. Follow the markers! Bring plenty of water.

Just a beautiful place. The walk is mostly along the reservoir and the scenery is just amazing. Few climbs up hill in some sections but nothing too difficult. We found a toilet in the middle of the trail couldn’t believe it. We didn’t use it but hey if you were desperate it’s there the hole in the ground as my kids put it.

Will do this Hike again only in reverse. Start Saddle Dam car park over the Dam wall on to the track and back to the car park.

Nice walk. A bit damp under foot & muddy at times. But the scenery is well worth it!

lovely walk, good track.

Help of a yomp!

Disappointing. Very rough and difficult to find this track. Not much bird life. Lots of rock climbers with constant loud music playing with expicit lyrics. Stick to the Grampians - any walk I've done there is better than this.

Good easy track plenty of wildlife

Wildlife reserve is an opportunity to see animals in their natural environment.

Beautiful trail. Takes quite a bit of unassisted rock scrambling so make sure you wear proper shoes with good grip.

A great ride around the city to see the sites, with plenty of cafe options for coffee.

A wonderful walk around the gardens here with the highlight being the view from the Trigpoint and tower. Used this as part of my Oxfam Trailwalker 2017 Training schedule.
