The Lake and Cascades

A circular walk of one mile or 45 minutes over uneven terrain that takes you up to the Grand Cascades and around the Great Lake.

Starting at the Water Terraces, follow the signs for the Rose Garden, the Cascade and the Pump House.

Follow the slope above the Cascade and continue along the edge of the lake to the Boathouse, then up the slope to the bottom of the Water Terraces.

This walk takes in some difficult terrain, so walking shoes are recommended. The Dam and Cascade has a walkway and viewing area that is accessible to wheelchair users. To access this area please do not use the circular route past the Boathouse, but follow and return via the Rose Garden and Temple of Diana. Dogs are not permitted on this walk as it goes through the Formal Gardens.
