Manly Dam Nature Trail is a 3.2km, grade 3 Return hike located in Manly Warringah War Memorial Park (Manly Dam) New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 30 mins to complete.

Summary

A short walk along the southern hill above Manly Dam with great views and fantastic scenery. One of the few tracks in the Manly Dam area where you won’t get run over by bike riders this is a great walk for those looking for something short and peaceful. Look out for black snakes and goannas along the way especially in the McComb Hill area.
