Overview

Trail around the Berg river dam and the valley behind this.

Runner Notes

The contour is quite steep and once you drop into the valley the jeep track is mainly clay and gets very slippery in winter

Description

Starts on a jeep track for a couple of km's, then scramble up through a copse of trees (use the trees like ski poles :) ). This takes you to a brilliant singletrack on quite a steep face around the contour to the next valley. This valley includes a small waterfall at it's apex. Once you are out of the river bed it is a bit of a slog to the finish.

Flora & Fauna

Good example of Cape fynbos throughout the trail

History & Background

The Berg River dam was only constructed in 2009 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berg_…
