“A moderate day run at the Hennops River.”— South African Hiker
Shortly after you reach Pafuri, the trail veers westward while you continue to ascend the mountain. Continue with the westward heading until you reach the second point of interest, the Bokmakierie bush. Continue westward until you make it to the summit of this little mountain where you'll be rewarded with the third point of interest on the trail, a lookout point of the Hartebeespoort dam and town nested along its banks.
From this point, the route will take a southward heading, and it will also be mostly descending with the occasional gentle ascent as you pass over a hill. Once you reach the fourth point of interest, Muragie and De Oude Muragie, the trail veers eastward until you reach the intersection. Turning right with a southeast heading will take you back to the cable car. Cross the river once more to reach 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 a fragile rock slide on certain sections of the trail.
