I went for a hike in Tokai Forest now end of July. The footpaths are wonderfully maintained, the hiking trails clearly marked, thoug hthe further up you go, the narrower the paths - wear solid footgear. At this time of year the weather is extremely changeable, so wear layers and don't forget a rain jacket. There is a little coffee shop by the parking area which is cozy and comfortable, but if heading up the mountain, take a water bottle and maybe something to snack along the way. I made my way through the massive pines - it's gorgeous!! and ended up on top of the mountain where the abundant fynbos and some proteas were in bloom. Breathtaking!
I only spent an afternoon here, and the forest is huge and the hiking and mountain bike trails extensive! I shall certainly go back to explore more!! It's stunning and a fantastic active day out. How fit you need to be depends on how far or how high you wanna go / climb.
