Time: 1 hr 30 min return

This easy valley walk starts from the same carpark as the Devils Punchbowl Waterfall walk. After the first footbridge over the Bealey River, the track goes left through mountain beech forest. There is a view back to the village from a lookout, 20 minutes from the track start. Most of the track gradient is gentle, with a short steep section descending to cross Bridal Veil Creek about half way along.

Getting there

Most of the short walks start at or near the Arthur's Pass village, on SH 73, about 150 km from Christchurch.

Several bus services run between Christchurch and the West Coast daily, stopping at the village. The Tranzalpine scenic train journey also stops at Arthur's Pass.

The signs are not clearly written and so it is not easy to find the right way. Very beautiful walk through forest and views to many waterfalls.
