I'd always wanted to see Bridal Veil Falls but it's not on the way to anywhere I go. One weekend I went specifically to see the falls and was totally mesmerized. Well worth the effort to get there, I highly recommend it!

It’s very nice water fall near to raglan. 10 minutes to walk to water fall top and 10 more minuets to walk down the water fall. It’s very nice place to go and relax your self.

A quick easy walk to a stunning view. Very well named. Well worth the quick walk thru native bush. We viewed from the top and then part way down. Track is nice and easy

Both the ten minute walk to the top of the falls though a wonderful woodland path, and the falls themselves were lovely. There is a viewing platform at the top of the falls, but by far the best views are to be had from the...More

My wife and I took a small detour to get here, and it's definitely worth a look. The first viewing platform is easily accessible from the road and there are two other viewing platforms which you can walk down to.

The Bridal Veil Falls is a short drive from Raglan. The walk takes about 15 mins to reach the bottom of the falls with look out points at the top and about half way down. There are some interpretation signs. The walk isn’t too difficult...More

Bridal Veil Falls is a must do if you are in the Raglan area. It is spectacular and viewable from just a 10 minute walk from the car park. You can view it from the top, mid way & at the bottom if you are...More

This is a typical example of a well maintained DOC gem with a well formed track, 265 steps from top to bottom and all in lovely native bush with Nikau palms etc. loved it.

Really worth the visit. Only a small detour from the main road and a short walk from the car park brings you to the waterfall. The walk itself is through a nice busy area also. The waterfall is 55m high so is not much to...More

As others have said, it is a short track, but it depends on your fitness level as to how long it would take. You could easily do it within 30 minutes, but could allow longer for just enjoying. Enjoy!
