Description

The Connecting Trail starts after a short run from the northern entrance off the Bloubos Trail and consists of a very steep and demanding climb into the mountainous area on an eastward heading. The entire trail is etched into the mountain with stone and gumpole steps and gentle boulder hopping. After you reach the summit, the trail levels out for easy running on dirt and continues toward the Beacon Trail.

Flora & Fauna

The reserve is home to approximately 215 bird species, which include Barbets, Swifts, Swallows, Crows and Doves, and 9 large mammal species which include Zebras, Black Wildebeest, Blesbok, Springbok and Red Hartebeest. There is also an assortment of insect life, which includes various butterflies, geckos and lizards. Smaller mammals in the reserve include Klip Dassies.
