We went for the green trail. It took about 45 min and was approx 4 km. It was a easy walk. Beautiful flowers and fyndbos. We went there with 2 teenagers and they really appreciated it.

The reserve is home to more than 1600 species of flora. The paths are reasonably well maintained and clearly signposted. The views are spectacular from Lemoenkop or Kanonkop. A lovely escape to natural beauty. Highly recommend.
