Pencile Pine Cascades, Cradle Mountain, is located on Pencil Pine Creek, and is easily seen from the car as you drive over a bridge, just before you enter into Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. From Cradle Mountain Lodge, you can walk 50 metres from the carpark to view the cascades from the bridge. Directly across the road is the Kynvet Falls track, which also guides you to nearby Pencil Pine Falls, and Kynvet Falls.
