Start from the toilets at Johns Creek and follow the gravel track to the west (Gladstone Track). Lake Hawea should be on your right side throughout the way.
The track follows open farmland and small patches of native bush along the lakeside. You will cross a few roads during the last two kilometres which are trafficked so watch out for any vehicles.
At around the 6km mark you will reach Scott's Beach which also has toilet facilities. The track ends at Hawea Dam.
From here you can either follow the highway to the left and continue on to the Hawea River Track, turn around and return to Johns Creek, or walk a few hundred metres to Hawea Store and Kitchen for a feed.
