Our first visit to Raglan and we saw the sign for the Bridal Veil Falls and we thought let's have a look. and I'm so pleased we did. It was a busy little stop, with good parking. Put on your walking shoes, although we only had jandals on, as did many we passed. My muscles are sore now. :-)
The walk is bush like to the first view point and it is so worth it. Then you descend down to the bottom still under bush so not to hot on a summers day and you go down hundreds of stairs. More than 200. There is a mid viewing platform and our photos here turned out great. Then at the bottom the view was spectacular and worth the effort. Have a seat and rest..... It is not a large area at the bottom but well maintained. The walk back up is a bit hard but the stairs are wide enough to have a little rest and people can pass by if needed. You will be glad you took this walk it was stunning.

Easily accessible - a short hike from a car park. 3 vantage points for the waterfall but there isn't much of a picnic area. Fantastic for a mini trip while visiting other sights in the area.

Like I said, go there! Awesome! Easy thrills and even better if you're willing to take the well maintained hike to the bottom! Beautiful.

An easy walk to the top viewing platform and a wonderful view. I was running short of both time and energy on the day I visited so did not do the bottom platform. Next time.
Definitely worth the visit.
