Starting behind the Visitor Centre at the end of Lake St Claire Road, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this walk leads to the Echo Point Hut via the Watersmeet and Overland tracks. The walk takes you through cool temperate rainforest on a track along Lake St Clair leading to Echo Point Hut. The old timber construction is set in a magnificent myrtle and sassafras forest, sitting at the water’s edge with views across the lake to Mount Ida. The walk is 11km one way, close to the lakeshore, and mostly through the rainforest. It doesn't have any hilly long sections and is suitable for most ages and fitness levels. The track is mostly dry under foot, but may have some wet patches after rain. Take care with your footing due to tree roots. This is a very long day walk, a nice short overnight walk, or even better still you can halve the walk by catching the IDA CLAIR (fee and booking required) ferry from Cynthia Bay to Echo Point and then walk back Cynthia Bay. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
