Length: 4.2 mi • Est. 2 h 37 m
Nice but small waterfalls, pretty steep on the way up with a nice view. Worth it of you're keen to sweat a bit and dont mind the wild pigs around. Mostly shaded. https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/marlborough/places/pelorus-bridge-scenic-reserve/things-to-do/tracks/pelorus-bridge-scenic-reserve-walking-tracks/Show more
