Great walk. Great track. Gorgeous views. Very much recommended.

Great track to walk/run. I went to TOPEC and did their rogaine course they set up. No way it should be difficult. Loved it

Fun track, at the top end of the loop divert up for another 15mins to get to the viewing point.

Excellent short circuit to some pristine running pools with a great view of the region from said pools. Really beautiful especially the sounds and the running creeks on the way back down. Be careful at the pools themselves as the rocks are quite slippery and their is no stairs/handrails.

Moderate hike thru wonderful forest with thousands of steps and demanding hills. Very low traffic, scenic lookout and greats bridges over troubled water.
Add the loop to the Dawson Falls and the Wilky pools for a perfect afternoon.

awesome

It was not quite what I was expecting, the bush was really thick and the bugs were swarming us the whole time. It probably would have been fine, but we had our 8 month old baby strapped on and she was unhappy about it. We ended up turning around mid way and coming back. Would have been cool to make it to the top, but it just wasn’t the Hike for us

No way this should be difficult. I did it in flip flops after church one morning.

Beautiful track with sporadic scenic views of Mount Taranaki and Lake Manhamahoe. There is a Redwood Forest hiding on this track as well! Nice picnic areas at the beginning and end. I followed upper track and ended up walking the main road at the end.
