Walk Description

From the Erskine Falls car park, start by walking to the imposing Erskine Falls, set in an amphitheatre of rock.  Walk down to the less impressive Straw Falls, 5 minutes away.  Continue along the track that follows the Erskine River to view the Splitter Falls across the valley.

You will be required to cross the river over rocks on at least four occasions especially shortly after you leave the falls. Follow the track downstream, where further on you will find huge rock slabs form a series of cascades.  Eventually you will come to the finish at the Kia Ora Caravan Park.
