Starting at the Wilson Bay/ 7-mile car park, run along the road heading towards Glenorchy for 2.2km and turn into the car park for Mt Crichton.

Run the Mt Crichton track past Sam Sommers Hut all the way to the junction along the top at around the 7-8km mark. Here you have the option to carry on along the Mt Crichton loop or go left towards Lake Dispute. GO LEFT to Lake Dispute. Follow the track all the way down past the reeds in the lake and over the wooden foot bridge, then cattle grid. About 150m after that you will get to a junction. HANG A LEFT towards Moke Lake (there is a DoC sign).

Follow this track up over the saddle and on to towards Moke Lake. At the 14km point you will come to the bottom of Moke Lake. GO LEFT around the outside of Moke Lake until you get to the campground. There are toilets here on your right after the foot bridge. From here you follow the gravel road all the way past Lake Kirkpatrick. When it changes to sealed road, keep following this past Anderson Heights, to the Glenorchy road.

Cross the road and 50m on your right is the upper 7-mile car park. TAKE NOTE: from here on you will need to follow the directions carefully. At the lake end of the car park you will see a bike trail sign under the only tree saying "B.o.B" - follow this down to until you get to a junction. GO LEFT and follow this all the way until you get to the top of the steep section. Here you will see a bike trail on your right, and ahead left. KEEP GOING STRAIGHT to "Eagles Nest". Follow the "Doc Track" back to the car park at Wilson Bay/ 7-mile. It is easy to get lost so keep following the track labelled arrow signs. For a bit more fun you can run down the uphill bike track called "Whats Up" until you get down to the lake front. From there go right back to the car park. Voila!

3 Lakes! Lake Dispute, Moke Lake, and Lake Kirkpatrick.

Heaps of parking at the car park. Also toilets.
