I did this hike in preparation for Mt Kilimanjaro and thought it was a bit basic for my goal but the scenery was beautiful. Not very hilly and quite well signposted but a nice walk.

Apart from being a wet day this was a pleasant walk

Great for dog walk

We added to the walk by going along the dargon, ant and Abraham’s tracks looping back onto dargon and then finishing off round the lake making it about a 6km walk. Very pleasant walk. However no dogs allowed outside of the lake walk . We saw big kangaroos, beautiful parrots and lots of water birds

What everyone else has said is true - the part at the end is not well signposted. But a great spot for trail running.

Lovely easy walk with great scenery.

A lot harder than we expected

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.

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.

Sign says 18k and 5 hours, leass than 16k in 2 hours 40. Nice walk with many marker posts to show the way.

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