HikingFeeGreat!

This is the easiest trail in the Kogelberg, along the Palmiet River. There is a beautiful beach to swim at along the river. Although fairly flat, it is quite slow going in places, and took us 4 hours (including a stop for snacks and another one to swim). We came back along the jeep track, just for some variety.

HikingFeeGreat!No shade

Beautiful surroundings and a very relaxed, easy trail. Some light climbing here and there but very easy nevertheless. Well maintained path and the added bonus of a swimming spot. Office staff really helpful and nice. The reserve as a whole is quite beautiful and well kept. I will be returning to hike one of their overnight trails. Really worth it.

HikingGreat!

We took our two pre-schoolers for a swim, we only did a part of the trail. You don't have to walk far to get to a nice swimming spot. Easy enough that we had no complaining and were begged a few times to go again.
