The track along the Hutt River was very nice and easy to walk, so not as exciting as other walk. But the swingbridge is always fun!
The views over the Hutt River were the best thing about this track. The track itself was not very special although it was still beautiful.
Nice spot, where Lord of the Rings was filmed. Anyway, the area is crowded with people on good weather days. Unfortunately, those people made a lot of noise.
Beautiful place with a perfect camping ground.
Swing bridge walk was awesome.
A nice bushy area close to Wellington where we hiked around for two hours. The Rivendell area was not super exciting, because almost everything from the Lord of the Rings was removed, but the forest itself is beautiful.
Nice walking track. Not many things referred to the movie Lord of the Rings.
Funny to see the places where the Lord of the Rings was filmed for real.

Many walkways - a swingbridge, a forest and a river. Only one part of the path was a bit disappointing because it left the forest and went along a road.
You can take a short or long walk around the forest. There were information boards telling/showing you where parts of the film were set, the campsite there was brilliant.
a fairly busy spot with little parking but home to one of the Lord of the Rings filming sites. Little to nothing is left of the set but there are other activities to do here. Many, perhaps too many, came to the Elves River to swim.
Sadly, the set from Lord of the Rings was taken down, but they provide you with a map so one can see where the crew had filmed. It is in a lovely location and many trails are located in the park.
Lord of the Rings fans will spot a 'tree' used in the film. More impressive is a 40min to 1 hour loop walk with huge nature trees - truly impressive bush and good family walking, dogs allowed.
The swing bridge was fun and made the walk more interesting, also visiting Rivendel (home of the elves)..... if it was not for these two, felt the walk could have been very standard.
Some nice walks through thick forest and alongside a beautiful river. Some fun information on the filming of Lord of the Rings there.

Lovely place, Lord of the Rings was partly shot here.
