An easy walk, not far from the township of Raglan, through native bush to a set of viewing platforms that showcase the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls. Each platform offers a unique view of the falls with some stunning photography spots along the way.

The platforms overlooking the 55m falls from different angles offer unique perspectives of this natural feature. Shaped over time by water flowing across harder volcanic rock onto soft stone below, the falls have a deep pool, which combined with an area surrounded by native bush and wildlife, providing a calm atmosphere as a result.

There are a set of stairs to the lower platforms, which may be more difficult to explore!

Popular, but wonderful

When I went when Mt Karioi was closed so we decided to this nearby Bridal Veil Falls and it was a great way to start off the morning! As always, the earlier the better because this place got busy when we were leaving. The falls follow down with mostly stairs and offers 4 amazing viewing platforms for 4 different angles while you are in the trees. It is very well covered by trees and make sure to take in the smell of the surrounding, it's beautiful! The climb down is great, but don't forget you'll have to climb back up. Even though there are well made stairs, shoes with a grip is best as the area can get wet.

Easy Walk Spectacular Veiws

Super easy walk with incredible views. Three different viewing platforms to see the waterfall from. We went at 4 in the afternoon and were rewarded with the afternoon sun. Baby goats and turkeys also made an appearance during the walk.
