The track circumnavigates Dove lake giving you a good perspective from all positions. The track is generally flat however there are a few short pinches. The circuit was not difficult - but then again we were departing for the 6 day Overland Trail the next morning.

This is a very popular walk so don't expect solitude The circuit of the entire walk takes about two hours, mostly along a well-made boardwalk. The walk gives spectacular views of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake. The walk passes through a variety of vegetation.

The dove lake circuit is made accessible by the brilliant Parks and Wildlife people who have laid an excellent boardwalk around the circuit. We encountered people of all ages and condition able to walk this beautiful circuit.

My first walk at cradle mountain and I wasn't disappointed. It was drizzling on the start but soon would fine up. Hardly anyone on the track that day so it was a pleasant 1:45min walk with lots of stops for photos.

My friend and I (both males) undertook the walk, he in his thirties and I of mid-sixty age. The walk was stunning and certainly, unlike some older reviewers, I did not find the walk challenging or tiring.....unlike the trek to Wineglass Bay. That WAS a challenge! The vegetation was diverse and fascinating. The mist across the lake looked so mystical... More

Dove Lake circuit is a beautiful circuit - however I'd still recommend doing other walks too. The Face Track (although more challenging and more suitable for good weather) is also amazing. Don't miss going to Crater Lake too - it's also beautiful and quieter than Dove Lake.

We did the lap around dove lake... so many photo opportunities it took us the best part of 5 hours. Bring some lunch with you and make a picnic of it

Loved everything about this walk, except had been told not to take bathers and wished we had, water was brisk but not too cold to swim.. Paths were in good condition and well signed, just enough uphill to feel good, beautiful views great for photos. Wonderful way to spend a morning.
