This tramp was amazing. Lots of stairs and some sections are quite steep. Coming down past Henry Peak towards the visitors centre was very rough. Lots of tree roots, mud, and large step ups/downs. Poles are highly recommend if you are shorter. Park at the Kaiauai car park, take that to Kokowai Track, that connects with Holly Hut track past the section that is closed due to a slip. There is a side trip about 40 min from Holly Hut to Bells Falls- so worth it! We stayed in Holly Hut the first night and walked the second half the next day. 5.5 hours each both days, including the side trip to Bells Falls. It took us about 3.5 hours to get from the Kaiauai car park to Holly Hut. If you park at the visitors centre it supposedly adds an extra 90 min at the start and end.

a great track full of amazing views....

It’s hard but I highly recommend that. The view is amazing, unforgettable!!!

Loved! It’s a beautiful hike and the trail is...interesting. They aren’t joking when they say it isn’t maintained. The forest is taking over that one fore sure.

Amazing track to walk/run along

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
