Gates open at 07h00 and be sure to bring cash along as their sign reads no cheques or credit cards. They do have a card machine but it wasn't online so I'm not sure if it'll work. I really enjoyed running this trail! Quite rocky and technical at times so took it slow over these parts. There were some flatter stretches as well where you can open up a bit. Overall I'd rate it a moderate trail and would like to return to try improve my time.

I definitely enjoyed this hike. Good elevation and technical most times, definitely need to keep your wits about you. I’m off to a three day and two night hike in the Berg soon and this was definitely good practice!

Great hike, so close to JHB - a great way to visit mama nature without needing to stay overnight. It's about 3.5hrs or 4 hrs to do the Bokmakierie trail - there's game to be seen as well! Full youtube review (or search for "Bokmakierie" or "Suikerbosrand"). No streams or rivers so bring water.
