Hike the Hoerikwaggo Trail
Smitswinkel to Slangkop
Join Ridgway Ramblers for the full five day Hoerikwaggo trail or for any portion of the trail that you have the time to enjoy. We will organise your food, accommodation, and ensure that your luggage is transported from camp to camp. Leaving you free to enoy the hiking without having to worry about anything.
Day 2 of the Hoerikwagga Trail offers a number of choices all of which require you to get a lift a short distance from Smitswinkel camp. My favourite route is to follow the coastline from Scarborough beach to Slangkop. This is the shortest and easiest day of the hike, but absolutely fantastic for views and enjoyment. You can really take your time and enjoy the scenery, the sea and the rock pools.
The village of Scarborough is a short 15 minute drive from the camp. Once in the village turn left at the stop street and you cannot miss the beach. Once you are on the beach turn right (facing the sea) and begin making your way North.
Scarborough beach is the first of a series of beautiful, largly empty, classic white beaches that you find along the Atlantic coast here.
