Beautiful native forest, nice river.
Super easy hiking and largely ahead of the time given at the outset. Beautiful view and atypical scenery!
A free hike between forest and the Pororari River. A beautiful forest and a finish with the Pancake Rocks. Amazing view for this landscape. And the must: eat a pancake at the Pancake Rocks Cafe.
Very nice walk along the river, with hills on both sides. When you wake up early in the morning, head to the top, the hills are in the clouds and it gives you a special atmosphere. Also nice for jogging!!
Lovely, quite easy riverside walk amongst the tree ferns with a few openings to view the other side of the river.
When done as a loop it is an easy half day walk. Through an almost magic Nikau forest all along the river, then uphill over the range, down to Punakaiki River. Back to Pororari carpark along the road.

Very nice walk along the river through the rainforest, beautiful views, mud on the last half - that was the bad side.
Expansive stretch of emerald green water, a winding track with lovely mountain overhang and many swimming launch points.
Very beautiful walk along the river with magnificent flora, but short cut because of bridge works.
Very beautiful and peaceful place.
Gentle flowing river surrounded by lush trees and cliffs. Very quiet and easy to access. Map available from the i-Site.
Amazing! Beautiful, awesome swimming, just perfect.
The walk was perfect even for slightly out of shape middle aged people. So beautiful with eye candy you hardly notice you are hiking up and down moss lined trails.

Nice view along the river.
The land that time forgot. Gorgeous.
Beautiful! Well marked and maintained. Great swimming holes all up and down. We ended up laying on rocks in the sun for hours longer than we planned. Great walk.
Jungly hike next to the river. Great swimming holes. Really like the fact that most hikes in New Zealand are really well maintained and well marked.
Very nice relaxing walk, next to the river, through very beautiful bush! I especially remember the colour :) Lots of GREEEEN! :) Really enjoyed this one!
Beautiful 3hr walk in lush West Coast Bush. It is best to start from the Southern end so you get the not so interesting part of the walk out of the way first.
Great walk (2.5 hours return) up a limestone gorge through dense rainforest.

two and a half hour walk, up and down, very nice, forest walk ie lots of shade!
Very nice walk with wonderful nature.
Seeing the Pancake rocks is very nice. But also the river track, along the Pororari was beautiful like a tropical bush. Easy to walk.
Take one hour 15 min walk alongside the river to the junction. turn left here and walk a further 10 minutes to the pedestrian suspension bridge.
Absolutely stunning nature. The walk takes you along the river and is quite easy.
Excellent track, beautiful rainforest, good variation in scenery.
Beautiful wild forest, good track, amazing colours!
Fantastic. Lush bush, clear river and lots of native birds.
Well laid out, informative.
Beautiful alongside the river. Well maintained.
Part of the inland track, very beautiful walk.
A 1 and a 1/2 hour walk, nice river and forest.
Ok, you won't be missing the Punakaiki Rocks but also stop at the bridge and look at these fantastic bluffs - and the river and beach.
Great short walk, not difficult, not crowded when we did it.
Quite hard - in the bush most of the time.
Beautiful walk even in the rain. There were very few people out when we were. Sights + views were amazing. Path was maintained very well.
Well worth a visit. Beautiful scenery + very well maintained track.
