near Yantola’s, Eastern Cape (Republic of South Africa)

This track incorporates the Madonna and Child, Bridal Veil and Swallowtail Falls as well as the Big Tree of Hogsback, and some other points of interest. This trail can be completed in either direction as a hike or run. Technical difficulty is difficult due to the precarious drop offs and steep gradients as one makes ones way up to and near the various falls. Take care! Brilliant forests and well worth the outing and effort. Take along water, food and camera.
