Waiorongomai, Waikato Region Map

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!

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.

Very nice and easy trail with great views. You can turn at the base of the falls or climb higher to the top (plus 60-75min).

I'm from the US and did this hike a few weeks ago when a friend and I dropped our other friends off at the Hobbinton tour. It was about 30 min from there and an easy drive. Easily identifiable by signs. We only had about an hour and a half so we just hiked to the falls and back. BEAUTIFUL scenery of all kinds; water, trees, rocks, falls, etc. Just a little muddy. Easy hike for the majority until you get to closer to the falls where most of the incline is stairs. I definitely recommend if you're in the area!
