 HIKING TRAILS

  • Alberts Farm
    Alberts Farm may not be known by many Johannesburg residents but it certainly has a number of good points that should be taken into account when one is looking for a place to go for a walk on a weekend afternoon in Johannesburg. The conservancy consists of about 90ha of small rocky ridges, undulating grassland stretching down to the wetland area along the Montgomery Spruit. The area is ideal for dog walking and kite flying while the more avid walker might enjoy exploring the spruit downstream to where it joins up with the Braamfontein Spruit.
     
  • Bakoondkrans near Witbank
    A popular two-day circular trail: 12 km on the first and 9 km on the second day. Mountains with panoramic views, ravines, indigenous forests, follows perennial Klipspruit with rock pools, waterfall with “foefie-slide” and rapids. Trail is not recommended for small children. Base camp: (20 persons) 300 m from the river, hot showers, braai facilities. Pots, pans etc. Lanterns. Overnight camp: “cave” hut between large boulders and rocks, ablutions and braai-area.
