Trail around the Berg river dam and the valley behind this.
Features: Lake — River/Creek — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
The contour is quite steep and once you drop into the valley the jeep track is mainly clay and gets very slippery in winter
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
