15 minutes from Raglan on sealed road. Plenty of parking mid week but might get harder on a weekend. Lovely and easy walk through the rainforest to the top viewing platform and the falls are just beautiful. Worth just that look. However if you can at least walk down to the middle level as this gives such a great view... More

A short drive off the main road and you are there. Plenty of parking, and a very short and easy walk to the viewing platform.

It is a ways down but worth every minute. Great views from platforms at the top, middle and bottom of the falls. Steps help make the hike up easier, but could test those out of shape. Well worth the stop!

The hike to Bridal Veil Falls is generally easy.... but there are stair that for some will increase the heart rate. So take your time and it is do able. The view of the falls at the bottom are worth the energy you will expel getting back to the car park

It was a easy walk to the viewing platform - and a great view was the reward. Not far from the main roads - well worth a little detour

Great view from either the top or bottom. The walk back up the stairs from the bottom did test the lungs out a wee bit.

Quite misty on the day we went, but pleasant walk to the top of the falls, and the steps to the bottom.

This is a great short hike adventure. Was a bit of a work out getting down to the bottom and than back to the top of the waterfall but definitely worth the view.

A truly unique walk through the vegetation and fawna to reach the breathtaking views of the waterfall which can be viewed from several viewpoints . Great for a selfie if you're into that sort of thing .
