We did this hike starting from the North End of Hahei beach, there are little sign posts all the way along so its super easy to find!

A few stairs but a nice gentle walk. very picturesque.

Excellent track, has the possibility to get very slippery during the wetter months l. Plenty of opportunities for a swim in the river

It’s amazing.

Stunning sweeping views, but you have to work for it!

Very beautiful.

A challenging hike with spectacular views from the top. Loads of stairs.

Nice view, but doesn’t worth the effort. Nothing to see until you get to the peak.

Loved it! Easy and impressive. A must see if you go to Waitomo.

Sloppy trail today. View up the top was pretty good, but doesn’t compare to other hikes we’ve completed.

A good hike to take on if you need to conquer a fear of heights ;). There are a TON of stairs. And the trail is extremely rocky. Your quads, hams and calves will get worked. I have knee issues so If you have joint issues, take it slow. The last 800 meters (mile?) Have steep ladders you must also climb up rocks. But the view was worth it.

I caught it on an overcast day and was trying to beat sunset. Very windy on the platform so be careful.

All kinds of people on the trail. After seeing a few elderly, children and visually impaired person on the trail, I felt a bit silly for being afraid.

One word of advice, don't wear bright clothes. The flies here are weird. Had been heckled the whole climb up only to realize half way down maybe it was my shirt and backpack. Hid those abs didn't have another problem.

Definitely a must hike!

Good for beginners, tourists and children. Short walk. Immediate gratification with views. Don't expect a hike. It's only 15 min at most

Best hike in Coromandel. We were very lucky with the weather, the sky was clear when we reached the top so we could really enjoy the amazing view from there. If there is a flood warning after a rainy day, doing the whole loop is not recommended, you should take the webb creek track on the way back as well (ask the warden at the pinnacle hut if there is a warning).

Like others say, it’s busy, but we took a shuttle up around 5p, and with the hike taking “45 mins” (without relaxing and taking pictures) would have been rushed to take shuttle back. We walked it back to the parking lot and stayed past 6p down at the cove—which was worth it because most people had left to get the last shuttle !

Can’t beat seeing (in person) the cover snapshot of the newest north island NZ lonely planet book !

Great hike. Clear skies when started but clouds moved in by the time we made the viewing platform on the top, so we missed the view. Visitor Center no longer logs in or out hikers for safety. So ensure someone else knows your hiking plan.

This is a great hike, if it has rained at all it is extremely muddy and slippery. My girlfriend and I both slipped and fell a couple times with hiking shoes on. The views are spectacular, a must do if you are in the area. be careful and take your time.

I really enjoyed the track! Would like to come back!!

Gorgeous views

Absolutely loved this hike!


Very cool trail! A lot of stairs (mostly natural). Great views. Definitely worth to go there!!

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

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.

Not worth the drive
