Very nice loop with kids. Loved the vegetation changes from forest to grasslands along the way. Can get a bit crowded if the weather sends folks away from the Tongariro crossing, we ran into about 10 people at the falls themselves. I think if you start with the upper loop, you can get nice views of Mts Tongariro and Ngauruhoe without having to turn around.

Very enjoyable walk but return to village is via Bruce Rd, which as little or no walking verge.

Great hike in nice trail. Lots of vegetation changes in short distance - tundra to forested. Start with lower loop as it is more strenuous, upper loop return is mostly gentle downward slope.
