This is a pleasant summer walk to a small waterfall. Take SH2 north from Petone to the turn off at Manor Park, or take the Hutt Valley train to Manor Park, cross under the road and walk back toward Wellington a few minutes. The picnic area is isolated from the dreary road and surprisingly pleasant.

Splashing your way up the stream is a key part of the trip, so it is ideal for sports sandals on a warm summer day. The track leads along the stream from the upper picnic area, and leads into pretty forest, rich with ferns and mosses. Pepper tree grows all around, while rewarewa and buttressed pukatea grow overhead. The path crosses the stream regularly, soon coming to boulders near the foot of the fall. Return the way you came.
