Estimated Times to Run







The routes and tracks are well marked so follow the signs from the reserve over the road bridge and onto the stairs of the track proper. There are several options here from very easy and great for the wee ones to moderate to really pretty tough. This listed route is the toughest.

Keep left onto the loop track and look out for the signed left turnoff to the Totaranui route. This is a proper route, no track, only orange triangles to blaze the way. It's steep and slippery. Poles advisable and your best grippy shoes. You'll have to keep one eye on your feet and one eye out for the next triangle.

Once you start downwards and sibling you are coming to the exit at the bench seat with a great view over the plains and a big way sign. The waterfall is only another 8 mins (walking) of much easier trail to a lovely horsetail waterfall and a bench to admire it from.

Once refreshed retrace your steps to the big waypoint and follow the waterfall track all the way back to the loop, keep left and then retrace your steps back over the bridge and to the reserve.

A big totara tree and a lovely waterfall full of cold refreshing water! Lots of bush birds. Swim in the river. Children's playground in the reserve.

Park up anywhere in the reserve. There's heaps of room, toilets, water, changing sheds, picnic tables and river access for a dunk too cool off on a hot day.

Look carefully for the next orange triangle before going too far without seeing one.

Generally good.

Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map, Crampons / microspikes (for winter conditions)

Plenty of water at the reserve and in the waterfall.

Pretty much 100% in forest so shaded and damp even in summer. Would be even more slippery in winter. But not much risk of sunburn and well sheltered.

Slippery drop offs everywhere but the loop track.
