Allow 8 hours to reach the summit and return. Start and finish the trail at the Witfontein Forestry station just outside George. No fee is currently payable but registration / permit must be completed at the forestry station. Parking is available there. There is a short section of scrambling near the summit where care must be exercised and it would not be recommended to attempt this in bad weather. An alternative trail ( no scrambling ) can be taken at the saddle by turning right to George peak ( 1337m asl ). Turning left at the saddle will lead to Cradock peak ( 1578m asl ). The total trail distance out and back is 18.4kms.
