From the Hollyford car park, follow the signs for the Hollyford Track. After crossing the first swinging bridge, you will spend the rest of the walk alongside the east side of the Hollyford River until you reach the Hidden Creek. Though the walk isn’t a short one, it is flat, easy and straightforward.
Most of the time, you will find yourself amidst lush rainforest. This will clear occasionally to reveal views of the peaks of the surrounding mountains. You may also discover some unnamed waterfalls, especially in the spring months. As you are walking through a rainforest and near waterfalls, expect it to be a damp hike—even more so if It rains.
About 2:30 to 3 hours into the hike, you will reach another swinging bridge that traverses Hidden Creek. However, the track to Hidden Falls is in front of the bridge (before crossing). A few minutes along the track from there, Hidden Falls will start to come into view.
You may find yourself immediately covered in the mist from the falls when they are strong and see the water as frothing white. When it is calmer, you can see the blue-green of the pool at the bottom.
