The start of this route is the same as the Woods, Lake and Feeder route. It devaites from that route after about 5.3km by continuing across the dam and turning left to take the lake side path rather than turning right down the steps to follow the feeder. The Woods and Lake route completes a full circuit of the lake at the Wardens Tower, initially arrived at down through the farm land (2.4km mark) and then left by way of the woodland path back up through the woods (5.9km) to connect with the early part of the route from where we retrace our steps (1km and 7km points).  

The circular section of this walk a convenient route to take from the Pool Car Park (5km point on our route) The cicular route, without the spur to and from our starting point at home)  is approximately 6km)
