Absolutely stunning. We went up and down the gully route, which is quite a scramble, but is safe and well marked.

The trail is very well maintained, including being paved for the first two miles.

This is a great day hike to do from Thendele. Well marked and not steep.

The first few miles is typical Berg hiking up the valley, through open country and a few forests. The hike should really be called the Gorge hike (as its marked in the reserve’s signs), and hiking up the gorge at the end is a must. You pass through the steep-sided gorge, with spectacular views up to Amphitheatre, and can swim in the pools carved in the rock.

Watch out of flash floods and speak to the rangers before hiking up the gorge though.

Great hike with amazing views. Some areas need to use staples and vertical ladders and can be expose so be prepared. It is well marked and also very crowded, so much that had to wait in line to go down the staples, but the views at the top is worth it.

Great sunrise hike!! I’d say it was a little more than moderate, but the views are so worth it!

awesome 360° views from the top

Best outdoor app

Beautiful view, paved route throughout.

Short walk to the falls suitable for families and includes a swimming hole. Steeper paved walk to the lookout with stunning views. Located in Royal Natal Park. Many other trails for all experience levels available.

Scenic level hike - great at sunset

Excellent

Breath taking.

We summited the Mount Aux Sources on the 28 January 2018. Its breathtaking to walk until the Ampithetre and the view from the Top its amazing.

Super easy trail with amazing views. This trail is good for older adults or kids.

This trail has incredible views! It has some difficult scrambling sections as well as a section with metal staples and chain ropes for a vertical climb. You can take your dog, but unless you're ok with carrying your dog up the vertical section, its best to take the alternate trail around to reach the top. I highly recommend this trail but go prepared!

Great hike in the city. Well marked and amazing 360 degree views. Moderate is the right rating as there are some sections with exposure. More difficult routes with scrambling options available. If you want to find Wally's Cave: go past the first ladder (do not go up it), go the old bench and go DOWN to the LEFT, traverse until you see an opportunity to scramble up to the right. If you go too high you'll end up on a flat lookout with a steep drop off

The footpath is never away from the road. Try not to get there around sunset because the road t'es really noisy.

Sunrise hike did not disappoint. Quick 45 minutes to the summit and a lot of people on the trail early so it felt very safe. Definitely do this hike.
