Definitely one of the best hiking trials in both jozi and the magaliesburg area. Taking the route down through the gorge is definitely worth it. Always recommend going there with an athletic buddy or two. Enjoy.

Great flow, with challenging technical sections and climbs, really rewarding and absolutely worth it! A true Mountain bikers paradise!

Trail is well maintained and the signage is good. Relatively good balance between shade and open sun. Advisable to start the hike early to avoid roasting, but bring a jacket with because the starting point can be chilly as you head down towards the river. Trail partially intertwines with cyclists so be mindful to give way. All in all, a lovely walk on the outskirts of the city.

This was the first time I did Hedianga and I found it to be clean, have well-marked trails and also very peaceful. The only confusion I had on trail was towards the end where I felt like I may be going around in a loop and getting back in. I luckily managed to find my way back out

Une superbe randonnée avec des vues magnifiques sur le vlei pendant la première partie. Le parcours est très bien fléché. Une progression plus lente au début sur le sentier qui longe l’eau. Après 6km, le chemin s’élargit, on rejoint alors une piste pour VTT. Les animaux sont au rendez-vous : oiseaux, bonteboks, autruches, elands... Sans oublier l’extraordinaire végétation du fynbos.

Good tough trail with plenty of viewpoints to the north and south, river runs and variation in gradient!

We did the 15km trail, which ended with winding up and down a rocky hillside to add distance to the route. It was nice enough but the end felt like a slog. Very little shade. Varied terrain. Periodic views of Pretoria from the hilltop.

This trail has a mixture of rocks and fast-flowing, non-technical trail. It is a fun trail with a few moderately-difficult rock-steps and descents. Another beautiful trail at Lindani Game and Lodges

This is a lovely trail with a beautiful view. Mainly over relatively flat rock shelves, this trail is not very technical, but is very physically challenging. With lots of game-viewing to top it off, I thoroughly enjoyed this trail .

Lots of Suikerbos, no much shade, multiple surfaces, great view back towards Sandton from ridge line

This is a stunning trail. It is technically challenging climbing up the trail, with some difficult rock steps. It flows beautifully coming down the trail. Really super!

What a great trail! It starts off quite rocky, and ends with some fun berms and table-tops. The rocky section is stimulating and exciting, but is not hectically technical. Really loved it!

Very fun, technical downhill. The trail is a bit washed, but not badly so. The long, natural rock gardens are challenging but thrilling!

Wonderful hike. Not to the peak but most of the way around Lions Head. Spring flowers are beautiful and varied. Getting to the trail head on the all trails map was tricky. Uber map wanted to direct the driver somewhere else. I suggest using a specific address like 9 Top Road and then driving to the end of Top Road. Or start the loop at another point where it contacts at road. Enjoy.

Beautiful walk! Really enjoyed the Ranch!

Enjoyed the hike! Weather was perfect and it was just the right challenge. Would do it again

Trails is recommended for Beginners and Families with young children. The trail is relatively flat with some easy obstacles. The trail is a split between grass fields and tree lines.
