A trip to its summit is an obvious choice when visiting the most photographed peak in Tasmania. On our way we pass Lake Lilla, where we may happen to spot a wombat at Wombat Pool. Once on the plateau at Kitchener’s Hut we are finally at the base of Cradle Mountain. The mountain is a remarkable sight being made up of high narrow ridge with dolerite cliffs on both sides.
SUMMIT OPTION: For the more active members of our group can choose an additional optional walk to the summit of Cradle Mountain to take in magnificent views. For those who attempt this please note this additional walk  to the summit involves rock climbing, boulder hopping and rock crambling 50% of the time up the mountain and requires good agility and fitness.
On our way back to Cradle Mountain Lodge we pass the impressive Lesser Mountains of Weindorfers Tower and little horn finally passing the twisted lakes and Lake Hanson. One of the best and iconic walks in Tasmania.
