Looking for a challenge? The Otago Dam Track is a 3 hour return walk through silver beech forest.
There are a number of stream crossings before the track finally reaches open country which provides you with stunning views back down the valley. You will reach Otago Dam after approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. Follow the track back to where you began.
Be aware there is the risk of flash floods along this track and you will get wet feet. Hiking boots and a good level of fitness are necessary.
Park at Gray's Dam in Gabriel's Gully Historic Reserve.
