About this track

Description

This short walk provides excellent views of a beautiful waterfall close to the road. Here, not far below the bushline, the beech forest is stunted because of the harsh climate. Spectacular icicles form around the falls in winter.

Getting there

Start from the car park 16 km up Ohakune Mountain Road.
