There are plenty of day hikes originating at the northern part of the national park. These range from easy ten-minute walks to more strenuous treks up Cradle Mountain. The Dove Lake Loop Track (2 hours) is the most popular and is a good introduction to the park.

The information centre sells a detailed map of these hiking trails for $4.

    It took 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete the circuit at a leisurely pace, stopping to take quite a number of photos.

    Clockwise is the best direction, you get to the great viewpoint first. Far side of the circuit is a bit boring.
