A nice relatively short out and back, with easy to follow signage. Dogs are allowed on leash which is a bit uncommon in the Coromandel area.

The run starts from the DOC carpark which is to the left (driving in) of the camp registration office. through a concrete river crossing which should be dry unless there has been heavy rain. The actual campsite and cabins will be on your left with long drop toilets and picnic sites available too. An obvious sign and gate lead you to the trail up the valley, its well marked.

There is a viewing platform at the top looking out over a waterfall. From here you can return the way you came or go exploring and try and find the trail to the top of the waterfall.

Features of interest

At the turn of last century the valley was home to around 300 gold miners and their families. Many relics of these pioneering days are still found in the area. Prior to the gold mining days the Kauri loggers and Gum Diggers worked these valleys. The old Telegraph line from Wellington also crossed the Coromandel Range at this point. The line was diverted up the coast due to the Maori Wars in the Waikato, 1845 to 1872.
