Its a few miles of the Highway but is probably worth investigating. Very scenic lake with some walks though we did discover you cant fully walk around it. Good carparking though the last bit of the road down is a bit bumpy. Good for photos

A local once told me it's because there are a lot of areas off of it that when seen from above look like the legs of a spider.

I'm not sure. It's pretty rugged and the paths that are there are all dirt. When were you thinking of going?? I might be able to get up there and check before you go all the way out there??
