Outram Glen is a popular picnic and swimming area. The walking track to Lee Stream has recently been upgraded and resurfaced and makes an excellent family walk.
The track begins at the car park and runs alongside the river. After approximately 30-40 minutes there is a short, steep stepped section leading to a long traverse above the river. After about an hour the track returns to the river and soon reaches the confluence of Lee Stream and the Taieri River.
Outram Glen is 23 km from Dunedin via Three Mile Hill. Approaching Outram township, turn right immediately after crossing the Taieri River Bridge. Stay on the gravel road that runs alongside the river to reach the carpark.
