Waikato- Bridal Veil Falls

We took a day trip to Waikato.  We planned on going to Hakarimata Rail Trail for a hike that I had researched beforehand. But somehow we ended up on a completely different hike through a Kauri tree forest. Not what we planned or expected, but it was still beautiful.  We didn’t see a single person.  It was SO peaceful!

We then drove towards Raglan and stopped at Bridal Veil Falls.  Unfortunately you can not swim in this ‘pool’ of water because it’s not sanitary and is also infested with eels! Eek!  Good thing it was posted several times because we probably would have jumped in!

There’s so much hiking I want to do in this area. Hopefully we will come back!
