This is a lovely easy walk, my daughters enjoy it at 4 and 6 years. They do the easier loop, without going to the higher point at the back. That does make the walk slightly more tricky!Although we didn't exactly follow the path. I love the views.

Really nice hike. Weather was really poor so we ended cutting this walk short and cutting across before the main incline (at the end of the lake). Fairly easy walk if you do this.

Great walk. I take my 5 year old boy on this regularly for over a year. He loves it. Bit of scramble off the path too again which he loves.

Good little walk with steady path on a dry day. With little pastries stall at the foot.

You can take the easy road by simply circling the lake at lake level (very easy road) or you can climb up towards devils kitchen and make a slightly larger circle (this hike). There are some places you need to use your hands to scramble over some rocks (north-west part of the walk) but the view up there is beautiful and if you take your time it is doable for most people and you’ll still feel nicely challenged on the hike. Would rate it easy to moderate, but only moderate for a very small part.

Beautiful scenery had an amazing time. Didn't do the whole trail as there was a ram at the top my dog took a disliking to but still completed a loop. The rocky cliffs remind me of the rock monsters from the never ending story.

It a nice pleasant walk and most of it doesn't rate "hike" at all. I grew up 5 miles from here and used to walk or cycle up here. Best times are out of tourist season.
