trail running

Love this place !! Such a great run. The thought of cooling off in the dam afterwards always makes me pick my pace up !

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

Easy trail, creek crossings could be tricky directly after some rain

Great track clearly marked and easy to follow. Tough set of stairs out of Bobbin Head!

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.

Hiked it on a school camp, it is a difficult peak for experianced climbers too, to my memory we went through the palm gorge (it could be the waterfall gorge but I dont remember where we went, it was the guides decisions) The gorge was challenging, we constantly had to think and climb over massive rocks, I probably consumed half my camelbak on the mountain. The decent was even harder due to it constantly raining, I fell probably 3 times on the decent. All in all it was a decent experiance.

It is a great track, hiked it 3 times, however, one of the dangers is a set of rocks above the cave, people including myself have fallen on it and hurt their backsides badly

Did the Wells Cave track 2 days ago and I'm already planning to go back out!
Never before have I done a hike involving rock climbing and going through a cave! Incredible! Not easy, but so worth it.

This was a nice and easy hike. You can walk on the trail or walk on the beach for sections.

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 work with variety of terrain. Beach, rocks.
Views are amazing

Had a lot of fun hiking. The scenery is beautiful. We did the track in reverse too!

This walk is about as good as it gets, traversing different types of landscapes from coastal heath to rainforest, and taking in beautiful bays and beaches. It can be done as a multi-day walk with a choice of camp sites, most located near secluded beaches, or travel light and stay at the Lightstation, making a 2-day circuit possible.

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.

good place for trail running

Great walk. Nice scenery. Lots of ascents and descents though.

A plesant walk with low traffic in June. Worth a visit.

A simple walk rather than a hike. Views are OK amongst the antenna.

Loved this hike. I’ve hiked a lot and this trail is moderately hard. The rock scramble is by far the coolest part of the hike. It’s not technical but I recommend taking your time and go at a pace comfortable for you.

The hike took us about 5 hours with multiple stops. We could have done it in about 3.5-4 hours if we didn’t stop as much. Not a lot of views until you’re almost to the top.

Only negative: be aware of poisonous creatures along the way. Aka: don’t touch anything. We did see a small black red bellied snake on the ride of the trail and stayed far away from it. Highly poisonous.

Plan to hike it on a clear day so you get 360 degree views. We only had one day in our schedules for it and it was quite cloudy. We did wait for the clouds to break and were able to see all the way to Byron Bay.

If you’re using a GPS, the address for the hike is about 3-4 miles short. You will need to continue up the winding road to where it dead ends to start the hike.

Epic hike. I’d recommend adding it to your travel plans if you’re in the area.

The hike itself is without much interest, however you do it for the view from the top. Go early to beat the heat but you won't beat the people. Popular for fitness training in the morning. Mozzies can be horrendous as they were the last time i did it 5th March 2018. Its definitely a must do when visiting the Sunshine Coast.

Totally worth the stop, albeit painfully touristy. If you go during summertime, prepare for the most annoying and plentiful flies you've ever experienced in your life. People were even wearing netting around their heads like a beekeeper. But you kinda forget all that once you (squeeze your way through the crowd and find a free spot on the railing to) see the view.

It's probably come along way since it was a rubbish tip but I would not recommend this walk. Overgrown with weeds and had to focus on not walking on doggy land mines constantly. Very few views of the water and birdife too.

Nice views, especially when the tide is in. Can be hot - best in early morning or evening. Regular filtered water stations. Numerous activities along the walk.

Great hike, interesting change from up high to down in the rain forest. Not sure why but Strava says this was almost 2km longer and 145 m more elevation gain than All Trails says. Elevation gain isn’t always accurate but distance usually is so beware it’s a good 30-35% longer than then 5.5km listed here.

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.

great hike with stunning views of the top of Mt Solitary however the loop is longer than the quoted 31 kms we started our hike at Scenic world and had already racked up 35kms by the time we finished at the top of the giant stairway at echo point so would've been at least another couple of kms it took us 12 hours total time so unless you really like a challenge I'd recommend spreading this one over 2 days

Last bit is less spectacular but a good hike otherwise
