A walk to suit all age groups. For company there’s a cascading river, wombat burrows and magical old-growth rainforest. The walk is located in Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park

The walk will take you through buttongrass moorland before entering cool temperate rainforest along the edges of Pencil Pine Creek. Along the track are three interpretive tunnels that kids and kids at heart will find fun to crawl through!

The first half of this walk (before the bridge) is sealed and wheelchair accessible, but after the bridge there are a number of steps. There are two accessible picnic areas located next to the visitor centre, both with sheltered picnic tables and BBQs. There are also accessible toilets located at the Dove Lake carpark. A TrailRider (all-terrain wheelchair) is available at Cradle Mountain for visitors with impaired mobility (see link above).
