Very nice loop with kids. Loved the vegetation changes from forest to grasslands along the way. Can get a bit crowded if the weather sends folks away from the Tongariro crossing, we ran into about 10 people at the falls themselves. I think if you start with the upper loop, you can get nice views of Mts Tongariro and Ngauruhoe without having to turn around.
