“At 74m high the falls are one of the highest in the North Island and have become a “must see” for travellers. Nestled in the northern Taranaki forests just off the Forgotten World Highway”
The track has a firm user-friendly surface that suits a range of footwear and caters for all types of walkers.
Climb the stair stile by the car park and walk over the formed track beside the creek. The first ten minutes is quite a smooth walk over open farmland. A wheelchair or stroller could be pushed but it may be a little bumpy.
Cross a steel beamed bridge into a lowland forest represented with rimu, tawa, silver beech, rewarewa and manuka.
Meander your way along an evenly graded benched metal track. Along the way you will see the junction to the Mt Damper Track - do not take that track unless you want an 8-hour walk.
From the first viewing platform you will get a view of the falls and valley. The track descends, gradually at first and then down some stairs, to the second viewing platform.
This one offers a closer look at the falls and the plunge pool at the bottom. Return to the car park the same way.
