A great 20min walk that starts and finishes with a tunnel! Well worth the 15min car trip to get there.

Nice well organised walk that captures some of the history of this whole area. A path leads on from here as does old building sites and a small town that was the age of the gold digger

This was a fairly quick walk through rainforest and including a couple of tunnels. Not spectacular but worth a visit if you're in the area.

I stumbled across some reviews of this place shortly before we visited the area. A number of people spoke of it being fun for kids and it worked great for this 62 year old kid. The area is accessed through a short tunnel and then follows an intimate walk through an area of wet gullies and high walls. A few bits of scattered metal piping and old stone walls are a testament back to mining days. The walk does have some well maintained wooden and stone stairs. A person could go in and backtrack to visit but avoid these. There is an additional low grotto like area off the trail. On our visit we were alone in the space. We were greeted by a parrot that called and talked back that we later determined was a kaka. The walk was longer than I expected and I felt a little turned around and lost although on a defined path and finally we left via a second tunnel. Only about 10 minutes off the main highway. 20 minute or so walk. But feels like a world away. Absolutely worth the time and the price. Easy little parking spot and Entry fee is $0.

This is a nice 20 minute walk through the forest. You start by walking through a tunnel which is long enough to be interesting but short enough you don't need to bring a flashlight. Then you walk through the forest and there is another tunnel and then you follow the road back to the parking area. Worth a stop is you have the time. Off the beaten path.
If you are heading to Arthurs Pass- continue down the road- it will be unpaved for a short way- but will meet up with the road to turn right on for Arthurs Pass and save you time.

The lady at the camper van camp told us about the glowworms, a short walk away. We walked over when it got dark. Four or five cars were parked on the large shoulder off Highway 6. Take time to read the information about the glow worms, you'll need a flashlight. It's a short walk and even wheelchair accessible. Turn off your phone, walk slowly and hold onto the handrail as you walk into the dark, glowing from the magical light of the glowworms. If you're alone, savor the silence and magic. And it's free!

This walk was simply magical! The foliage and birdsong was the best we've experienced in a long time. It's easy to get to but no one else was there (shhhhh) so we had it to ourselves. This is a must do when you are in Hokitika.

This walk is off the beaten track near Hokitika so not many tourists drive out to do it. We decided to drive there on a whim and we loved it.

It’s not a long walk but there are long single file tunnels to start the walk and end the walk. It then winds itself through a rainforest and is a really easy short walk. Great way to stretch your legs if you need a break.

If you want to a little quirky walk that not many people do, I would recommend it.

You enter by tunnel, and exit by another about one hundred metres up the road. There are unlikely to be many others on the walk, and it is a relatively easy loop to walk. Almost all beech forest.
