Great easy walking, picturesque bush, river and waterfall

We have hiked to the Peach Cove hut each summer for the last three years. I’ve gotten progressively more unfit, so it’s gotten harder each time! But the track itself is great, in good condition and well maintained. We stay at the hut for a couple of nights so we are carrying our gear, food and water which makes it tough. It would be a much nicer walk without the packs! We love it and it’s a fantastic family holiday.

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.

Personally, I died with an overnight tramping pack on and it was challenging with the stairs but I'm also not that particularly fit but managed to do it, besides that the trail itself was pretty and it was fun to do and listening to all the native birds.

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 hike that runs past the falls and then cuts in front of the falls along a walk bridge at the base. taking the trail further you walk along the river and then into a Kauri forest where you can see a few very large Kauri trees. overall, it is a nice hike and quite easy.

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.

did it last year and some places weren't well maintained so be careful to watch for markers and bring your map.

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