Beautiful hike 2 miles up and back. Did it close to 1 1/2 hrs. Beautiful double waterfall. Lots of young families hiking or as they say in NZ tramping with little kids. Sure to get them tired! Go!!

Stunning walk or jog, its a gentle climb but definitely a good track. Great view of the waterfall, even great for a dip. Love this hike! Great for kids.

Not far from Whangamata and definitely worth a visit. Going to the falls took about 45 mins but was upward slopes most of the way. On the way back multiple people asked how much further. The walk was very nice though and scenic the whole...More
