RouteDove Lake Trailhead - Hanson's Peak - Cradle Mtn - Kitchen Hut - Marion's Lookout - Dove Lake Trailhead
NotesProbably the best day walk in the vicinity of Cradle Mountain this route climbs up first high above Lake Dove, and then on across the plateau briefly before ascending Cradle Mountain. The ascent to Cradle Mountain will require some agility and scrambling skills and becomes more dangerous when rain makes the rocks slippery. Although short in distance the ascent and descent of Cradle Mountain is quite slow going.
