This spectacular trail steadily rises from sea level to 634 metres (2080 feet) above sea level. It is a strenuous hike which richly rewards those who take it on.
Approximately 9km (5,5 miles)
What will I see?
The trail takes hikers over four mountain peaks offering stunning views of unspoiled mountain scenery to the north, the village of Kleinmond to the south and down to the ocean far below, the wide expanse of the Bot River Kleinmond Estuarine System to the east, and the Palmiet River and mountains that sweep down to the sea to the west.
The trail passes through pristine mountain fynbos in the heart of the fynbos biome. In September the famed Proteas, Ericas, Restios and Geophytes (bulb, rhizome and corm forming plants) that make fynbos famous are at their best.
What do I need to know?
There is no technical rock climbing, but there is some exposure to height. Depending on the fitness levels of the party, the trail takes six to seven hours. Sturdy hiking shoes or hiking boots, sunhats, clothing suitable for changeable weather, water, drinks and trail food are essential.
