Beautiful. Good swim spot but cold. Worth it

Nice coastal walk. Trek well maintained and an easy walk with no steep inclines. A few areas not sign posted.

beautiful scenery with lots of options for hiking

Awesome circuit walk to celebrate the New Year!
We started early to avoid the heat/crowds and walked clockwise. There are lots of steps down to Wineglass Bay beach from the lookout, so walking the other way would be more difficult.
Take plenty of water - the 1L per person recommendation at the trailhead would be insufficient for most people, particularly later in the day.
Also keep a lookout for snakes. We came across 3 within 1 hour and were warned of another by hikers coming the other way. So tread carefully and wear enclosed shoes.

Stunning scenery. One of my favourite places in Australia.

Lovely walk with views of the cradle mountains and lakes. Not to challenging some uphill climbs but breathtaking views. At Rooney creek there are lots of wombats about so keep a look out.

Great hike with views of wineglass bay, the incredibly beautiful hazards beach (which I preferred to wineglass beach). Hike wasn’t too streneous and easily done in trainers. Was fairly busy did this one 23rd December, but still had some alone time. Bring lots of water, it gets hot! Also sun screen and head out early to avoid heat. We did this route clockwise and was definitely easiest done this way around

so beautiful

Amazing. Must do

Short easy walk on a boarded trail. Saw lots of animals on the walk such as two wombats and an enchilada.

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!

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

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!

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!

Beautiful view

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

Fantastic 7 mile loop. We recommend starting with the lookout and getting the elevation and crowds over with first. It was crowded up at the top, but we saw almost no one on the backside and enjoyed the minimal elevation and changing landscape.

Hiked in April and the weather was mild with a few very brief showers. Took us a little over three hours at a moderate pace with few stops. A lot of wallabies and beautiful views.

At the start it is an urban walk, then a park walk leading to a trail along a creek. Several cross paths led to some incorrect trail choices. Hang in there past Churchill Ave and the trail becomes steeper and more fun. Great views from the top.

If you’re trying to get to the summit do not follow the trail that AllTrails has posted in here (as of March 2018). You’d be better suited to take the shuttle (or your car if you get to the park early enough -before 7 am) to the Dove Lake stop. I took the Dove Lake Circuit clockwise to Hanson’s Peak (steep with chains but a gorgeous route) you’ll see white poles with red reflectors on them that’s the route. Continue onto the Face Track (pretty strenuous) which will take you to the Cradle Mountain Summit Track. The summit track starts with stairs but takes you to bouldering and climbing. It is not for the inexperienced scrambler. There are parts that are tough alone (if you have short legs) but doable. Sometimes using your knee to prop you up is best. After you’re done with the summit and head down the Overland Track to the Dove Lake Alternate Route (steep with somewhat unnecessary chains). You’ll be back at the bottom and go past the well-known boat shed. It’s beautiful and I would highly recommend it.

Great views of the Freycinet Peninsula. Wineglass Bay Lookout has a nice view. Once you get up and over the lookout (~1.5mi), trail is pretty flat the rest of the way.

Quite a hard hike but very beautiful and the view is worth it!

This walk showcases some of the best beaches I've seen. Best done on a sunny day to let the colours fully come through. The walk can be done in around 4hrs but take lunch and take the day to enjoy the beaches. My favourite was the west end of Hazard beach. Beautiful sand and rocks to swim from.

A unique place

Very hard

Very slippery due to lots of leaf litter at this time of year, take it slow coming down the last part after button grass plain
