A gentle walk beside the lake and through Ballroom Forest - the wildflowers are so beautiful. It is not to be missed on a visit to Cradle Mountain - and please don't forget a camera!

Wonderful, very easy walk around Dove Lake, the walk took me to Glacier rock and the the far edge of the lake which is like a lost world.

I enjoyed the walk and the paths are well maintained. We got some fantastic photos also. Just be careful on the road in and out there are some very close calls sometimes especially when icy.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 3-hour walk around beautiful Dove Lake. Gorgeous vistas everywhere! Mostly a flat walk however there are quite a few stairs...well worth the visit!
