Hiking in the Fernkloof nature reserve
The Fernkloof Nature Reserve is found just behind and overlooking the small town of Hermanus. About an hours drive from Cape Town Hermanus is famous for whale watching and relaxing beach holidays. However the mountains behind the town offer some wonderful hiking trails through some wonderful fynbos with amazing views.
There are 4 main trails although as they all pass each other and many start and end on the same trail it is perfectly possible to combine a couple to include specific sights of interest or views to your walk. Ranging from an hours gentle amble covering 2.2km to a long tough hike of around 6 hours covering 13.7km. There is something for everyone here.
These photos give an idea of what to expect:
