Great panoramic views. Great renosterveld fynbos. We struggled with the walk from the parking to the hill summit. Tourguide explained that a second noon gun was also at this site.

We took a brisk 10km walk along the trails as part of training for our ParkRun and road walks. It's great to be surrounded by nature without having to travel far. There is a lovely picnic area for friends and families to enjoy

It can be hard to locate...but that's part of the charm. Once parked and paid... you are alone to explore the different trails. Best to do in a group... I felt isolated and a little wary. Leaflets and signposts leave you well-informed and you feel...More
