I have ventured down to this reserve regularly with family and friends and continually enjoy the natural beauty of the area. A lovely summer afternoon visit to enjoy the cool areas and have a picnic dinner somewhere near.

The Reserve is just a few minutes drive from Waitomo town. The walk was an easy path without difficult or very steep steps.

The Ruakuri walk would have to be one of New Zealand's top short walks. Not for people who do not like steps but the pathway is well formed and maintained. Return after dark with a torch and visit the bridge and the great glowworm display.

What a fantastic walk and to think it is still FREE. This walk is laid out in a figure 8 and has really good tracks and varies from caves to bridges over streams to native bush. Must go again at night as I understand there are glow worms to be seen.

Lovely sampler of the local cave scenery in a free walk - beautiful stream and flora. Beautifully constructed boardwalks, typical of NZ. Worth doing.
