Bridal Veils Falls, Raglan Reviews
Amazing waterfall. Short hike and great views. The walk to the bottom is not too long and certainly worth the trip. Went just before sunset and we were the only people there. Takes only 10-15 min to get to the bottom of the falls. Also, there was some great things to read about the Basalt rock.
Waterfalls are wonderful - fact! It's a bit of a drive to get to but once there it is only a short walk to the falls. Perhaps a little oddly you start at the top of the falls then climb down to the bottom, the stairs are wide enough for one person going up and one going down. There are 4 different viewing platforms, two at the top, one halfway down and the last at the bottom. The falls are aptly named. The DOC toilets are what you'd expect at such a location, good that they are provided but not particularly nice. There are a couple of picnic tables just inside the path by the stream/river that feed the falls. Well worth the trip to see, spectacular views, especially after recent rain fall. Enjoy 🙂
Worth the visit but mind the steps down/up to gain best experience. Good site if in area.
Everybody needs to see this waterfall. The hike isn’t too bad just about 200 stairs to the bottom and the better views are halfway down. When I was driving here I didn’t think it would be that great, most waterfalls I had seen either weren’t that high or trickled down along the mountain. This was different, this waterfall is about 180 feet high (55 meters). And it just shoots out water and the scenery around it makes it just that much better.
A hidden gem tucked away close to Raglan in a beautiful remnant of native bush. One of the more spectacular waterfalls in New Zealand.
