What people say

"NOTE: Some of the bridges are closed down for maintenance so it is no longer a loop trail at the moment, and instead an out and back. Make sure to allot more time because of this Similar to Blue Pools, this gorge has some incredibly beautiful blue water! However, if it's raining, we honestly would recommend skipping because you won't get that gorgeous blue! "
"The Hokitika Gorge offers a stunning scenery with a 1 hour loop taking you through the rainforest, over a swing bridge and down to the river with its absolutely beautiful and stunning blue/turquoise waters."
"Stop for some of the bluest waters you'll ever see. The loop trail is easy and takes about an hour to complete."
