This is a hidden gem in National Park, not often explored due to the technical nature of the trail. It starts off cruisy, leading you into a false sense of security! 1km in is Taranaki lookout - definitely worth a brief stop. Another 2km along and you get a magnificent view of the Falls. And that's when the fun begins! The last 500 metres of this trail is un-maintained so there is quite a clamber down to the bottom of the Falls, but certainly worth the effort. If you're brave, go for a swim but be prepared for the cold!
Re-trace your steps and watch out for goats who often frequent the track
