Plenty of parking even on public holiday. We had a great time with friends. Went on a public holiday, so cool to see other aucklanders join..it was buzzing
This is a wonderful hike! I was lucky enough to hike this three times while I lived in New Zealand for a year. The drive there from Auckland takes around 45 mins and the parking is not easy on a summer day so please take this into account. The hike to the falls from the trail head isn't far but at the moment I cannot remember how far. No more than a couple miles. There is also a station that requires you to spray your shoes before the hike and this is very common in New Zealand. The Kite Kite falls are gorgeous but the water is cold even in the summer so take this into mind. I loved every min of this hike and look forward to doing it again when I visit New Zealand.
You can climb to the top of the fall. Really nice.
Often full it's better to park in the overflow carparks or at the Piha campground end of Glen Esk Rd. You're going for a walk anyway, doesn't hurt to add a few hundred metres.
Great walk to the waterfall, it remains one of my favourite places to visit in New Zealand
