Pleasant walk with some great views of the lake and very few inclines. I don't understand people saying they had to go back because the bridge is shut, walk 10ft past it and cross the stream!

HikingBridge outGreat!

Such a stunning route, thoroughly enjoyed it. The bridge is closed (due to rotten wood according to a local), you can however cross two smaller streams about 15 meters past the bridge. You do have to be carefull since you have to step over a few stones and a small log, but we found it quite do-able.

HikingBridge out

Really disappointing as the bridge was closed so we did not get to see the lake side and had to go back the same way we came. And no warning about the bridge being closed

Great walk , bridge is out but you can take detour through the woods lest of bridge . Some people have climbed the fences by bridge. Worth the hassle walk is stunning

WalkingBridge outFlooded

Enjoyed a peaceful walk on the route. unfortunately the footbridge was out of use due to recent weather so had no choice but to return the same way. a little disappointed that there was no notice of closure.
