“An easy trail that is ideal for beginners and children.”— South African Hiker
An equally gentle descent on the hill will lead you back to the river, where you'll cross the Hennops River by means of a hanging bridge. The trail heading turns west from here and you are faced with a rather steep, but short, ascent. Once you reach the first intersection, you'll head northward down the Dassie Escape Connector following the path until you reach the Hennops River where you'll cross the river once more by means of a cable car to reach the starting point at the Hadeda Camp.
The trail is very well maintained and clearly marked; however, you should be vigilant as a large section of the trail is extremely rocky, and you basically descend on fragile rock slide on certain sections of the trail.
