Perhaps a less popular trail at Cradle Mountain but well worth doing! The views from the top of Hansons Peak are spectacular. It’s also a great spot to watch the sunrise. Either hike up to Hansons peak and return back to Dove Lake track the same way, or continue on up to the Face Track and take in Lake Wilks along the way, or return via the super pretty Twisted Lakes. Probably worth noting it is a steepish, semi exposed hike at times up Hansons Peak, but there is a safety chain to hold on to if needed.
Any time of the day, any time of the year is spectacular at Cradle Mountain!
