Bridal Veil Walk
Track Grade Walking: Track
Walking Time 1½ Hour Return
Features: Mountain Beech, interpretation panels, Bridal Veil Falls, viewing lookouts down the valley.

Description: Bridal Veil Walk is a pleasant forest walk with mossy banks and chuckling creeks.
After the first footbridge over the Bealey River, the track goes left through Mountain Beech forest. There is a view back to the village from a lookout, 15 minutes from the start of the track.
Most of the track gradient is gentle, with a short steep section descending to cross Bridal Veil creek about half way along.
Return the same way or via the road, to make a round trip.
Old Coach Road
Track Grade: Path
Walking Time 30 minutes return
Features: Wheelchair access, blind trail, historical route of Cobb and Co Coach.
Location: Starts at Greyneys shelter, 6km South of Arthur's Pass Village.
Description: This pleasant forest walk is suitable but challenging for young children and people using wheelchairs. It follows a gently graded section of the century-old coach road and leads back to the shelter on a more recent track. You can still see sections of old rockwalling along one part of the track.
At the Northern end of the track is a rope handrail. You can use if for guidance, so shut your eyes, and use your other senses as you move through the forest.
