Great for a day with kids who can endure 3-4 hours (one way and return) on the trail. Muddy in places after rains, but it's not that bad. Very easy one way, if someone can pick you up at the other end. (There's easy car access and parking at both ends.) No toilets for 4 hours! Lots of birds around. Spectacular waterfall at Haruru Falls end. If you start at Haruru Falls, you can have lunch at Waitangi Grounds cafe, and go back the same way.

Beautiful hike! Just as said in previous reviews, hikers are rewarded with amazing views all around. The hike was 6km in total, 6.25km if you do the loop as well. We are relatively experience hikers and completed the track in 1.5 hours although the sign said 2 hours.

one of the best hikes in the Northland! A really good workout for an overall short distance. some steep inclines with steps but the views are awesome and you can see the bay side and the ocean side as you hike.

the beautiful hills and the colors of the water in the bay are amazing! trail is well-marked and maintained. I highly suggest this hike.

Afterwards, stop at WAINUI Bay and have a snack on the beach. sand beach, beautiful water and just a few people.

Nice easy, some inclines, hike. The falls are very pretty. the hike beyond the falls follows the river and meanders through the bush.

Was actually 9.5km out and back. Good for running. Can start at the falls or at Waitangi.

Not really a hike, but pretty.

A few stairs but nice enjoyable walk. Did with my month old in a front pack

Great ash hike, a bit steep going down but it's short. Beautiful waterfall at the end.
