I hiked from mosselbay to Pinnacle Point on the trail and it was rather easy with excellent views. Apparently it gets harder from that point on.

Let's start by declaring that the trial provides access to beautiful scenery. High level cliffs, flowers, rock hyrax (dassies), sea birds. However, this is not a trail for the couch potatoes. Rather book a gholf cart at Pinnacle Point... The paths are typical mountain paths, rocky, uneven, slippery in many areas. Small sections close to Mosselbay are flat and sandy. Close to Danabay is on the beach. The rest (90%) is up and down, around the coves, over the "points"... Look at the trail stats... The information board at the start in Mosselbay suggests 6 hours. We did it just over 5, with 30 minutes (max, cumulative) stops for water and photos. I am a hiker, fit, but hike for fun, not to race... I took 750ml water with me, not enough! Fortunately the guard at Pinnacle Point was gracious to fill up our bottles. Doing it as a round trip, I salute you! As closure, it is a great walk, beautiful... Thanks to my son for accompanying me and share this pleasant experience.

I've been in Mosselbai for a month now and this trail has been an absolute dream. long sections of rocky cliff, beautiful ocean views and plenty of small coves to explore.

Great course for hiking and running, also it's got amazing Indian Ocean views. For hiking this is an easy course as you can take your time and plan your foot landing, but for trail running this course is a bit more rugged with the ground being varied, it's quite rocky, in some areas it's got gravel, sand and some mud. Elevation is varied with some steep inclines and declines. The views are amazing, it's about 11 km if you start from the harbour and end at the Pinnacle Point Club House, of course it continues all the way to Dana Bay which ends up being a total of approx 13km. Of course in both directions it adds up to about 27km.
