I visited here with some friends, It's a beautiful place to visit. It's really not a far walk and the path was very easy. Definitely a good one for those unable to walk far or with small children.

Small amount of parking right up to where the walk starts. About 2 mike walk with 3 year old and dog, nice easy tracks to lake. Ideal for dogs and picnic.
