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

Great views and best short hike in the park

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!

Loved it

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!!!

Mostly boardwalk trail through rainforest around Dove Lake with good views of Cradle Mountain

on Mount Amos

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!

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.

The path wasn’t easy to find. It’s not marked as the Mount Nelson track. Had to follow Signal Station. Especially the beginning just worked with the GPS. The trail itself is nice, but until the top no nice views. Lots of dead trees. Saw plenty green parrots. The view on top of the mountain is nice. I took the Truganini Trail down the hill. It’s maintained but more natural.

A very interesting walk. Lots of different landscapes. Sadly one part was closed for maintenance. But there was a lovely alternative. I really enjoyed it on a sunny Saturday at Easter

Track is well maintained. Beautiful views. Moderate difficulty due to the climbs.

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.

The views on this hike are spectacular, the overnight huts have well equipped kitchens and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The rangers at the huts are a wealth of knowledge and their daily briefs are very informative.
Each day has something amazing to offer, views, wildlife and the tracks are very well maintained.
Best 4 days of my life, absolutely loved it.
