Easy trail along old tram line. Some muddy sections. Beautiful rainforest. Go past suspension bridge for best view. Trailhead sign says 4k each way but it is really 5k so 10km in and out.

what an amazing experience. definitely not for the inexperienced hiker, involves a fair bit of climbing and scramble, hiking shoes are a must. Views are unreal.

So if you love mountain Alpine hiking, this is the area for you in Tasmania. If you don’t have the time and/or did not get the booking for the Overland track, this is the day hike for you. My husband, six and eight-year-old daughters, and I completed this yesterday October 10, 2019. The weather was in the low 50s and rainy. We began at 11:30 and ended our hike at 4:45. Keep in mind, the last bus from Dove Cove leaves at 5:30, which is a real drag, haha. We did the hike the opposite way and modified the very beginning, that is go up to Marian Piont and then continue on to the hut. at the base of the Cradle summit. The only downside of doing it backwards is that we didn’t know if we’d have enough time to go out to Cradle summit and therefore did not. This hike has so much to offer – mountain views, moon like terrain, lake trails, rainforest trails, fun tricky ascents and descents with handrail chains,..... an awesome hike and the right hike. By the way, we saw no one on the backside of cradle mountain – we had it all to ourselves! Go for it!!!! Note: The visitor center had no idea what trail we were talking about when we brought up this hike. They seem to be only knowledgeable in the very short, easy hikes. Do your research ahead of time. In the three interactions we had with the park, they talked about bodies, death, and other words to invoke fear. I literally had to fight my husband to do this hike, and we both were so happy with the choice. Use your brain and be cautious, but this was a user-friendly hike clearly marked and clearly maintained. There are a few scrambles and you have to be careful with the weather, but it is a Half a day to a short day hike. Have fun!

Good hard hike with great views. plenty of rock climbing required to do some of the peaks.

Mountain bike friendly also.

beautiful!! even my 2 1/2 year old twins managed this one... stunning walk of course we didn't go on the suspension bridge but the whole walk was family/kid friendly... they loved the muddy puddles and mummy loved all the beautiful trees! Montezuma falls was a spectacular sight... rewarding hike

Went in the Autumn. Ran into fewer than 20 people on a May Sunday. I got in right before first light so I went to Marion’s first before continuing on with the map above. Just about all the tracks outside of the tourist heavy Dove track have challenging bits, especially on your descent after a long day. You also get pretty varied terrain to tackle. The dense foliage with running streams everywhere took me by surprise on the southeast side of the summit, where as in other parts it’s all jagged rocks that will mangled your feet with poor placement and protection.

Astonishing views from the summit after a hard and challenging climb through the rocks. It can get very crowded during public holidays. Not for the fainted heart. Inexperienced hikers take care as the climb before the summit it is hard and very steep.

Well kept track - easy walk, pretty, no hills. Muddy in parts in April, so by winter would need more attention to footwear.
