Cradle Mountain Lodge runs a daily program of guided walks, abseiling (rappelling), rock-climbing, and trout-fishing for lodge guests. The park has plenty of trails that can be attempted by people equipped with directions from the staff at the park headquarters. Be warned, though, that the weather changes quickly in the high country; go prepared with wet-weather gear and always tell someone where you are headed. Of the shorter walks, the stroll to Pencil Pines and the 5km (3-mile) walk to Dove Lake are the most pleasant.
