Points of interest along the walk

In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.

Point 1: Bridal Veil Falls, Raglan

For a weekend drive from Hamilton this is the place to go, the carpark is small but sealed so no dirty shoes. For wheelchairs you can only go as far as the viewing platform but you still get to see the great view of the falls. Walking back up to the carpark is a challenge, I counted 300 steps, give or take a couple to climb but the strong hand rail will help. On a very strong windy day take a rain coat with you if you are walking to the bottom of the falls, the drift from the falls is like rain.
