Beautiful walk and can be combined with the Windows Walk/loop. The walk follows the gorge most of the way, with a large tunnel towards the end. Some good swimming holes and river access in many places. Take a torch and wear good footwear as there are some dangerous pieces of steel sticking up in a few places.

TAKE A TORCH! Really enjoyable walk with lots to see along the way. Great views into the gorge and found it much better than the rail tunnel walk. If you have time, I recommend walking further up the gorge past the window walk. Around 30 mins will take you to another big tunnel and a swimming hole. There is also a full flow of water from a tunnel near the aforementioned tunnel. Then return and complete the Window Loop.

Easy, fun, interesting and free! Beautiful river and a lot of caves. A lot of history here.

Only did the last half or so of this trail into Huka falls, but the trail was nice and well maintained. Fairly easy going through bush alongside the Waikato river. The falls offers up some pretty nice views as well.
