It was $30 per car to enter the National Park. The pass is valid for three days of park access. The various falls were flowing less this time, in December, than there were during our previous trip..... more

The pools are wonderful, but the view from the coastline is even better! Powerful waves crashing ocean spray all around, so refreshing after your hike up Pipiwai, and really cuts through the humidity. We weren't allowed to swim in the pools when we went in April, but honestly the water looked a little gross by the time it had come all the way down the mountain.
You know. One of the better Gulchs I've seen. Our Gulch of the day during our trip for sure. A nice spot to look out onto. Can get a bit windy in the area so, be careful. A nice place to stop by fairly quickly or hang for a fit. The area isn't lacking for pretty overlooks though. Pretty cool, lots of water. The area hikes here are nice as well so I'd stick around and do the other hike too.
