Really gorgeous hike - a uphill but still easy. You have to cross a lot of fords on the road to the trailhead, so just be ready for that. we just had a little Toyota Corolla that did fine, but it also hadnt rained recently so the water wasn't too crazy.

Hiked this a few years back and it was one of the highlights of our trip so now that I am using All Trails I thought I would review it. It wasn’t highly trafficked but can be a pain to get to if rainy due to muddy roads. We had to help push the car in front of us through a muddy area. The views and hike are worth it. While this is rated easy. It is all relative as to what you are used to. This at times is moderate but easy because the trail is well maintained and easy to walk. Weather also plays a role. Look at the map for the incline. I’ve had much easier trails makes as moderate vs this in IL and TN in the US. Nonetheless if you can walk and are in ok shape you can do this. Again...the views are worth venturing here for a few hr hike.

Great hike - harder for the littlest kids but amazing views, a variety of micro-climates, well maintained trails, and a fantastic drive-in with beautiful farms and sheep. Bring a car/truck w enough clearance (0.5 m) to ford the streams en route to the parking area. Was a terrific 1/2 day hike

Do it

Amazing hike with breathtaking waterfalls! Do note that the road to the trail head floods in places, so if you don't have a car with good clearance than you'll be walking about and extra 1.5 miles to the head.

5 stars because you will see everything on that trek (huge waterfall, snow, alpine, ice, river, perfectly blue water...etc)

Scenic and relaxing hike all the way! The drive here can be a bit of a pain with the gravel and small water crossings. Bring a picnic as the spot at the end is incredibly and you will want to hang out on one of the many rocks for a good while.

amazing hike

Astonishing environment, one of the best walks of the South island. Leave early to avoid crowds and enjoy the silence. Not exposed, also good for families. Very easy. Shouldn't even say this but you must know that weather can change fast so it is always good to take extra clothes. Do not cross the river, seracs may fall down unpredictably especially late morning/afternoon.
