Mostly along management trail, this walk follows the pipeline from Heathcote out to the Goanna Track circuit. Be sure to go down to Lake Eckersley as this is arguably the prettiest part of the walk. If wanting a break, there are some good spots down at water level, with nice views and picnic tables.
