Laurie Glover on the trail, making his way to Windermere Hut. Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair walk, February 1988.

Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair

Walking the trail from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair. The 60km walk from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair is must do for any bush walker (as I discovered after doing it!).

I went with Laurie Glover (now deceased) who was much fitter and more experienced at bush walking than I was. The walk is moderate to difficult and once you pass Cradle Mountain the going is a lot easier; apart from the deep mud that is.

At Lake St Claire I caught a ferry to the bus pick up point for the cross Tasman ferry, but the much fitter Laurie walked the extra 15km to the southern end of Lake St Clair.
