Nice view but sometimes too much bush.

A nice walk through the forest on a small road. The bad thing is that the waterfall is small but the walk is really nice.

Three hour walk . Nice bush walk into the mangrove. At the end, you end up at a waterfall. It was not an impressive waterfall. Coming back by the road is risky.

Mangrove part is very nice, through Kiwi territory, then on to the waterfall at the end.

Very nice walk through forest, one can see mangroves, lots of birds. But Haruru Falls itself is a bit disappointing as it is really tiny.

Started at Falls, straight into a bushwalk which got a bit boring then through a Mangrove swamp - very interesting. Took 2 hours.

Good track through forest, kiwi habitat, mangrove forests. With Haruru Falls as the destination it is a lovely walk.

A well maintained and pleasing track, but one which has been reported inaccurately by e.g. paihia.co.nz making all other downline figures wrong too.

Stats from GPS: averaged over several two-way journeys:
Distance one way = 4.6 km.
Time one way = 1.5 hours (slow-to-moderate pace with a few stops to take in the scenery). Terrain is flat to slight undulation, never more than ca. 20 m ASL. Hope that puts it into perspective.
