A hard climb to get up there, but once you get to the ridge line the view are truly breath taking! More than work the effort.

Spectacular walk on the east side of the lake. Well paved for the first four kilometres, thereafter you have to climb across rocks etc. Very steep but the view is worth the effort.

Well laid out traverses. Good park, a reward at the end point. 5 good hours.

Five hour return walk, very steep at the top but worth it for the great 360 degree views.
