Arve Falls is an enjoyable short stroll following a creek below the main Hartz Mountain carpark. Interpretive signs throughout give walkers an insight into the surrounding vegetation and wildlife.
The trail itself is flat and easy to follow. Beginning from the carpark the walk crosses button grass plains before descending to the creek. A lookout at the end provides good views of the falls and the valley below.
Arve Falls is a worthwhile stop-in for walkers attempting the higher alpine walks within the park such as Hartz Peak.
