A challenging but rewarding day walk is the Cradle Mountain Summit walk, 1545 metres above sea-level.
This amazing hike takes up to 10 hours and covers 15.5 km. This is difficult walk, particularly near the summit with rock scrambling and fixed chain assist.
This hike needs to be booked a minimum of 24 hour in advance and is weather dependant.
Please note that the itinerary is subject to change without notice.
At Cradle Mountain start our walk at Dove Lake as we head straight up to Hanson’s Peak. This steep track climbs quickly above Dove Lake and will certainly get the heart and legs pumping.
From Hanson’s Peak we descend onto the Twisted Lakes area where we take in some amazing mirrored images on the water and great views to Cradle Mountain and the surrounds.
Heading along the face track we will walk under the imposing peaks of Cradle Mountain. Looking back up to Cradle from underneath is really a sight to behold and we eventually join part of the Overland track near Kitchen Hut.
We trek on and upwards entering the large rock and boulder section of the climb, eventually reaching the summit. At the summit (if weather allows) we will have some lunch and a break allowing time to appreciate the spectacular views.
Making our way back Via Marion’s lookout and Wombat pool. Once we are all back safely we congratulate and farewell each other before we drop you back to your hotel or the Visitor centre.
Please note for safety reasons, guides will need to check all hikers gear prior to the departure
