Very nice view! It was worth a detour on our way back from Cathedral Cove.

do the whole ride from Paeroa to Waihi and back. Track mostly follows an old gold mining rail line so is pretty flat. Very scenic with a couple of bridges across the river and a long tunnel to ride through.

This little leg stretch is well placed and the hot pools are great too. It's nowhere near kinloch though...

Was a good easy walk, I took my 7 year old she loved it

not worth the money. but hey it's outside and you see some stufg

On the weekends may be crowded. Can be muddy if it has been rainy. Great view and nice forest!

Better to go by night and observe all the glow worms !

The waterfall is beautiful! The trail is paved with crushed rock, so easy to navigate. The ancient plantlife puts you in another world.

Pretty neat falls. Well kept & marked, easy to follow track. Can get a little busy.

Super short walk

amazing walk, takes roughly 2 hours return. 45mins up to first waterfall lookout and another 45mins to top of lookout, all up hill, a few river/bridge crossings and plenty of stairs. lookout for the weekends due to heaps of people with dogs, and runners. asian tour groups who dont make room for others, and people too busy on their phones to look where their walking.

Bridal Veil Falls is a stunning waterfall approximately 45mins drive from Raglan.The falls are 55 metres high and the Maori name Waireinga translates to ‘leaping waters’.

Amazing trail. Good workout as it is a bit of elevation gain especially if you go all the way to the top. Once I got to the lower lookout I decided I had to make the trip to the top because it looks so amazing. Unfortunately it was pouring rain by the time I got to the top, no views to speak of as I was literally hiking in clouds on top of the mountains.

Surreal and beautiful!

Not worth the drive

Easy. Nothing hugely noteworthy. Swimming in the falls not allowed.

Amazing, took some great photos.

Rough track & practically all up hill but the sore glutes are well worth the amazing views from both the lower and upper look out! Amazing!!!

You must go to the top. Worth the effort as views are amazing !

Beautiful trek up, awesome views out over the Waikato

steep climb back up from bottom of water fall to trail

Beautiful trek up, many views along the way. Take plenty of sun protection.

A safe,easy short walk with excellent views. Take a torch.

Probably great for a family, not for the adventures

Very nice trail for a warm day! It winds through pretty rainforest the whole time and follows the river on occasion.
The view of the waterfall at the lookout is very impressive. As is the unusual perspective you get if you choose to walk all the way to the top. Very peaceful sunny spot for a picnic there :). Would do it again!

Went there last November. Pretty easy walk. Beautiful place.

Awesome! Views out over the Waikato from the top are amazing. Took our 6 year old this one, was a challenge but she loved it. Fully recommend

Awesome hike worth the trek going up.

There’s a scary ass 500m mine you have to walk through! But it’s a beautiful hike, made me think of Alice in Wonderland.
