Easy walk, the lake itself isn't all that pretty if there is a breeze but it's a peaceful spot to go by. Sheep grazing in the paddocks near the start of the Caples track needed to be dagged/crutched BIG time, flystrike galore!... guess the cockies in the area like seeing their animals backsides being eaten by maggots...
However don't let that put you off of course :P Have fun on the swingbridges and many hidden pooled spots along the Greenstone river.
