Walk to the Dam Lookout  


This walk starts at the Bank Cafe in the middle of town. This is a wonderful place to begin a walk. It's an even more wonderful place to end a walk!

Simply follow Sunderland Street towards the dam and follow the road out of Clyde and up the hill (it's gentle) until you come to the left turn into the dam lookout area. Contact Energy have erected an excellent information kiosk there to tell you more about the dam.


Walking map details :

The red circle on the map indicates the starting point. You can, of course start your walk from anywehere along the track.

A green rectangle on some maps indicates an important feature (e.g. a lookout)

'Easy' walks involve no strenuous uphill or downhill.

'Moderate' walks may well involve the odd steep pinch.

'Hard' walks will involve quite a bit of uphill work.

Remember that, at times, you may be passing through private property. Please respect this. Remember when passing through a gate to leave it as you found it. If it was shut then shut it after you. If it was open then leave it open.

Clyde is very dog friendly but we work hard to keep it that way. Don't let your dog scare other kept animals (e.g. sheep, hens etc). Remove any dog messages of the solid variety.

These are not, of course, the only walks around Clyde. There are many others, including the official 'Walk Around Clyde', following the brochure produced by Promote Dunstan.

Would you like to send feedback about a walk - and maybe a photograph or two which you took. Send them to us by email and we will add them to the relevant walk page.
