Nice easy walk with the dog but I'd go elsewhere and leave this to the mountain bikers. On the upside it's made me want to get a bike now too so there's that.

The part through the forest by the river is really nice, but once you cross the concrete bridge it becomes somewhat of a plain road. While you are there you may as well visit Rivendell.

Nice moderate hike but about 8 stream crossings on the Deliverance portion of the track. Shoes with good grip recommended.

Great family hike! Lots of stairs to the lookout, fairly steep down to the stream bed, and pretty slippery on all the gravel. But worth the walk!

Great hike! Very rocky along the stream bed part of the walk which was actually quite fun! Just got to have good balance and coordination. Pinnacles were amazing from both the lookout and from underneath! Definitely recommend doing the ridge side of the loop first and then coming back via the stream bed.

Terrific! A bit of adventure while approaching the pinnacles from the streambed. Just careful of rockfall.

Wonderful easy Sunday afternoon walk! Lots of additional tracks to go sit down by the river.

This is a nice trail that’ll take you up to the lookout and down to the base of the pinnacles. Note that the stream-bed portion of the trail isn’t super well marked so just keep an eye on the north/west side of the stream so you don’t miss the trail markers.

Even if you are not fan of the lord of the ring its still a nice track to do, walking in the middle of the Pinnacles is funny. Obviously if you are fan, you have to stop here !

Nice short and easy trail up to both the base of the pinnacles through a river wash. Grom there, you can go up to a viewpoint for a fantastic view of these formations. I'd recommend you go right at the intersection, and head up to the viewpoint after you've been to the base. The climb down is gradual and mostly staircases that way, while you only have a few of those on the way up.

Few moments from Lord of the Rings where filmed here. It can get busy but track is wide so you won’t feel squished. Quite rocky surface, wear good shoes.

Nice easy bush trail to take the kids. Great views of the river along the way, and a bit of Lord of The Rings filming location.

I only had time to go to Rivendell which was cool but not worth driving multiple hours to get to to see. It’s beautiful but not like the LOTR movies although there are some nice descriptive panels and signs. Amazing trees and birds, fairly crowded for NZ.
