Did this hike in the rain. If you go counterclockwise, you’ll go down a steep series of steps to get to the bottom of the waterfall. Clockwise you’ll have to go up. Depends on your knees. The waterfall is at about the 11 o’clock position from the start. So if you are planning on going on to hike further than the loop, going clockwise will let you see the waterfall early in the trip. Except for the steep set of stairs, the hike was mostly gradual changes in elevation. Enjoyed this hike.

Did this on a cloudy day and was still treated to a wonderful walk, not too difficult. Take the high beginning or you will be turning around to see the mountain. Bring water and a snack or two.

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.

Great hike in nice trail. Lots of vegetation changes in short distance - tundra to forested. Start with lower loop as it is more strenuous, upper loop return is mostly gentle downward slope.
