This walk begins off downhill, soon there are some views of the reservoir then the track begins to wind its way along the edge of the reservoir keep an eye out for different water birds.

I would advise taking you camera equipment as well as a pair of binoculars for some good bird watching. After approx 1.7km you come to a Y junction go straight ahead and some more views of the Enoggera weir come into sight. There seems to be alot of bellbirds and a few whipbirds around here.

From here the track winds into some bush some small reminent of rainforest. And from here it gets a bit "are we there, yet" but keep on going up and over the ridge and back down again and you rejoin back at the Y junction.

Now the return route can be a little problem if you leave it late to do this walk because on your return from the Y junction. You will meet alot of people along the way.

Some signs have been errected "brown snakes" in the area. So watch your step when walking around the exposed hot ridge areas.

Also this track can be combined with the Corymbia Circuit to add a bit of distance for you walk.

It was a fabolous afternoon whit a fabolous person!
Did the walk with Bridgette it was super fun! Walk itself is really easy, pretty much all flat and the path is easy to find. We have really poor sense of direction so we accodentaly did the walk twice 😅 it is a loop and you'll get at a pint with a sign that will direct you to the right way, back to the beginning. We were lucky enought to enjoy a lovely sunny, not too hot day. We saw a few wild animals too, which os always a big plus!
I can't say how long the walk took, because we did it twice, without knowing, but it is certainly easy and l would recommend it for a nice relaxing half a day out!

Last part of the track that loops and connects is closed. Once you get to peninsula break you are required to turn back and return the way you came.

Small section of the track was closed due to erosion damage. Was a nice easy walk mostly along the dam.

Nice simple walk. A few seats around. Spotted a red belly black snake and some sort of marsupial mouse or bandicoot. Delicious scones at cafe after.

I took longer than the recommended time as I was taking photos and enjoying the wild life. I saw a huge lace monitor!

Too busy for my taste even on a Friday morning. Perhaps too close to the city.

A delightful easy 5-6km walk from the car park. Lots of beautiful birds to photograph along the way.
Busy on a Sunday

A lovely walk - easy to navigate, good clear paths and well signed. Heaps of bell birds, whip birds, scarlet honeyeaters, white naped honeyeaters and superb fairy wrens. Loved it but I would not recommend this for people with wheelchairs/mobility aids due to some stairs and plenty of exposed tree roots and rocks. Just over 5km.

This was my first time t the reservoir so it was good to see what the space offers. The walk was easy with steps, tree roots and rocks/stones on the track. Birdlife: Superb Fairywren, Australian King Parrot, Scarlet Honeyeaters and White-naped Honeyeaters to name a few.
