Time: 4 hr return

Superb views of the surrounding countryside reward those who climb to Trig K. In one direction the tramping track leading up to it continues on from the waterfall track, passing through mature and regenerating beech forest on a dry ridge. The other, shorter approach climbs through lusher podocarp-broadleaf forest. The track is steep in places.

Not too special, but more challenging than most walks we have seen so far.

Beautiful warmup walk if you are heading on to bigger ones. The first waterfall is beautiful, the second is deep enough for a dip. One fork in the path could use a sign, others were well signposted.

Good workout but too exhausting to stand up at the top and cannot look around because you are surrounded by trees.

The track to the waterfall is okay but further on it is really hard and long and 'the lookout' is awful. Trees everywhere and no landscape (4Km).

Despite the dry waterfalls it was worth the effort - nice forest, stunning view at the top and some good information along the track.
