Bridal Veils Falls, Raglan Reviews
It is a nice little walk with the family in tow. My youngest (5yrs old) managed it with ease...though he was tied by the end. Walking to the top lookout was easy along a flat trail with the bottom lookout only accessible via stairs. On the day that we visited the parking was limited as the track was quite busy.
Spectacular place and well worth a detour from wherever you are heading. The falls are a short walk (5 min) through the jungle at which point you hit the viewing point at the top of the falls. This is spectacular but the real magical view is from the bottom. The walk to the bottom is a further 10 mins each way but highly recommended. Truly spectacular. My dad was actually moved to tears :-)
Beautiful falls. Can't swim there due to farm runoff so don't bring your swimming togs. Maps says it's only a 600m walk but this takes you to the top of the falls. It's about the same again down steep stairs to the bottom of the falls. Nice walk though and worth the mission.
Amazing Short Track. 55 Metres drop can be seen from Top, Side, and all the way down the catchment. Can take a dip if you good and confident. Amazing view and true to it's name. 15 min drive off SH23 to Reglan, 30-35 min return walk and some 100 steps may be. Worth visit if you in area.
Easy trek for the family. Our 3yo marched down and up again unassisted. I'd recommend going after a good downpour. The falls don't come out as far and the waters rather murky, a dry summer WILL do that. Still worth the trip either way.
