Leaving from the Lake St Clair Visitors Centre, the Shadow Lake Circuit is a fascinating 12km walk that weaves its way through 3 strikingly different forest types; highland eucalypt forest, sub-alpine moorland and rainforest. Situated below Mt Hugel, Shadow Lake itself is beautiful and provides a picturesque spot to stop and explore.

The trail is clearly marked and mostly well maintained underfoot. Climbing only 270m throughout its duration, the Shadow Lake Circuit makes a great 4-5 hour family walk for anyone visiting the Lake St Clair National Park.
