Piroa Falls Track
- Waipu Gorge Scenic Reserve is signposted on SH1 at the foot of the Brynderwyn Hills. Follow Waipu Gorge Road for about 7km until you reach the car park and track indicated by a DOC and AA sign.
The track is a short, steep zigzag down through bush into the gorge. You cross the Ahuroa River on a concrete slab bridge with “Rotary 1983” engraved on it (the track was built and upgraded courtesy of Maungaturoto Rotary Club). About five minutes after crossing the bridge, you can view the picturesque Piroa Falls from beneath.
The river has a number of swimming holes along the track making it a worthwhile family trip.
