Beautiful easy family friendly trail.

Absolutely incredible place but wouldn't recommend for the average walker as it is quite steep most of the way up and on the approach to the summit can be quite dangerous. The on the other side of the ridge line is a 300m cliff so please be careful. At times sections of the track can be very easy to lose so pay attention to where you come and go. Other than that some of the most stunnung views of the overland track.

Beautiful! At the boulder unfortunately we couldn’t climb as was steeper than we thought and weather wasn’t the best for the hike however the rainforest and farm land was beautiful. Will definitely try again when weather is better!

bloody amazing. we did it in winter when it was cheap and had a ripper of a time! deep snow, cold water, it was incredible!

This was a wonderful hike (didn't know of the loop so did it as a out and back) and I have to say, Hobart in general is a great escape after being in a city like Melbourne or Sydney for a while. Hiked with a big group of people most who doesn't typically hike at all. Everyone enjoyed the hike and loved the view. It is definitely cold up there so bring a spare jacket. There is a enclosed viewing area if you get too cold but don't want to head back down yet though :)

Make sure to pick a cloud free day. Fantastic views from the summit.
I did it with 74 year old.
Fantastic views, well worth the effort.
A couple of spots you need to watch where the track goes..

Incredible views from the top but make sure you come prepared. Decent shoes and a reasonable level of fitness are a must as there is some rock scrambling and sheer sections of climbing involved.

Great trail. A bit of hard work, but well worth the view once you make it up!

Definitely worth the view. Proper footwear is essential as there are some challenging bits with flat and steep rocks to scale up. Going down is harder.

Spectacular views over the Furneaux Islands. Can be cloudy on top. Worth the effort. Moderate difficulty if you have some fitness level.

Very easy but pretty walk

One of the best short hiking trails in Tassie and certainly one of the most popular! Really beautiful views from above, but if you want to make a day out of it be sure to pack some snacks and venture down to the beach itself - you'll often find you have it all to yourself!

The 4 day (3 night) walk is a great way to see the rugged coastline of Tasmania and take in some of the most stunning views in the South of the island. The huts are wonderfully maintained and above average for trail accommodation!

Great way to see the heart of Tassie!

Favourite hike so far in Tassie hiking in Snow capped mountains in winter just amazing.

Great walk. The lookout was great on a Winter's day. Overcast in the morning but still amazing.
I did the loop and went back to the lookout in the afternoon and it was clear!

Very very hard hike, don’t listen to the moderate report, only do this if you’re not scared of heights and good at rock climbing. While we were on the way up a man had got his foot stuck fell and broke his ankle had to get a chopper to pick him up. View at the top was magical and coming down is way easier than the climb up!

One of my favourite walks so beautiful when it is snowing really like a winter wonderland

Beautiful view

The first day is hard you are constantly hiking up hill with a pack and doesn’t seem to end would not do it again would rather the overland track any day

Loved it really enjoyable and great to do if u do it make sure u do the side tracks also

Awesome track... did this last year October.. loved it.. Hazards beach is a great place for a swim

Simply amazing!

Gorgeous Hike, and outstanding view but I think it should be consider Hard level because the weather can be very rough and the path is uneven at some part. Get a good pair of shoes and get some extra layers because its very windy on top! But it worth it!!!

Was a great hike - some of the trail is a little overgrown in places, mostly around Lake Ball, but all up was a great couple days

Best hike I have ever done. Went 1-6 April. We had rain, gusty winds, sun, heat, cold, mud and lots of beautiful mushrooms. Loved it all.

(Done as a 4 day walk with hut accommodation) Beautiful scenery. Walk was designed as an introduction to multiday hiking, and for families so might be a bit "cushy" for the seasoned hiker who likes to rough it.
The distances each day aren't long, so walk slowly and enjoy the landscape.
Rangers are excellent, facilities great.

You can do the walk without staying at the huts.

Incredible. Highly recommended!
