Beautiful walk! If you are fit and don't stop all the time to take photos of the many point of view, you'll probably be much faster than what the sign are saying so take your time and enjoy!
An amazing place to ever visit if you are into hunting, fishing or tramping. The bush is teeming with red deer. The lake is full of trout. If you fly, lure or soft bait for them you WILL catch trout. The creek mouth is an amazing spot to fish. There is at least 2-3 fish there at one. They are so abundant that my friend foul hooked one. The tramping is incredible as well. There is a walk that you can go around that goes around the whole lake!
