Bridal Veils Falls, Raglan Reviews
Beautiful waterfalls, just a little off the beaten track. They're definitely worth stopping off for if you're driving from Hamilton to Raglan! There's a pretty view from the top of the falls, but it's worth going down (and all the way back up) the steps to get a full sense of the scale of the falls.
Good walk, lots of stairs. Good fitness & mobility required. Narrow walkways, well formed. Not pram or wheelchair suitable except for the viewing platform at the top of the waterfall - nowhere safe to leave prams so best to leave the pram at the car and carry small children if you want to journey to the base of the falls.
Just a short trek through native bush, you will encounter is one of the North Island's best pieces of scenery. The falls drop over 55 metres and is easy to see how they got their name. The path to the top of the falls is a quite easy and will suit anybody. The walk down to the bottom details over 250 steps, which are quite steep but there is a view from the midpoint, and then the bottom is well worth the effort providing a hnique perspective on how volcanoes once shaped the land. There are plenty of benches at the bottom given you a chance to take in the scenery and catch your breath before heading back up Thelk back up is a bit of a challenge due to the gradient, so taking it slowly is recommended.
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.
My partner and went for the walk and it's well worth it with several magical views of this beautiful waterfall. . For a short walk it's quite strenuous, especially coming back up, but it's well worth the effort. We had the added bonus of getting to see a feeding kereru only a few feet away from us
