McGregor Nature and Outdoor Activities

Hiking

  • Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail ( Mcgregor –Greyton ). The Boesmanskloof Trail winds through the only gap in the rugged Riviersonderend mountain range, with steep gorges, large rock pools, waterfalls (the Oakes Falls) and lovely Cape wildflowers www.boesmanskloofmcgregor.com
  • The Kleinberg Trail. This is an easy, 2hr walk up Badge Hill
  • The Kingsriver Kloof Trail. This Trail provides a gentle hike, starting at the guest house, curling up the beautiful, water-eroded ravine, past rock pools, waterfalls and large caves, and opening out to one of the largest dams in the area. It is ideal for nature watching or a picnic.
  • Rooikat Trail. This is a circular 19km trail through the Elandsberg mountains, offering scenic views of the Langeberg and Riviersonderend mountains. You are bound to see springbok grazing in the succulent karoo vegetation. It is fairly strenuous, with the path rough underfoot, and requires 8 hours of walking. Sturdy hiking boots are essential. No water is available on the route, and hikers should carry a sufficient supply (2 litres per person). www.capenature.co.za
  • Heron Trail. This is an easy 3 km hike through succulent karoo vegetation, which takes you to two shimmering dams. Each has a wonderful bird hide, well hidden in the reedy surrounds, and a few hours spent in either, of an early morning or evening, should produce a few birding surprises. www.capenature.co.za

 

Mountain Biking

  • Vrolijkheid MTB.  This pleasant circular route of 8 km (±1 hour) meanders through a section of the reserve. Please stay on the marked route. Rate: R60 pp (includes reserve entrance). Please contact Vrolijkheid www.capenature.co.za

 

4X4 trails

  • Groot Toren. This spectacular 4X4 trail offers self-catering and camping accommodation as well as the opportunity to drive one of the most exciting trails in the country. Rated by Drive Out as one of the Top Ten 4 x 4 trails, Groot Toren is 11km from McGregor on the road to Bonnievale and Stormsvlei (R317).This 24 km circular rock, sand and mud (in winter) route in the Rviersonderend mountains takes 3 to 4 hours. It is exhilarating and challenging for the experienced driver, and for the not-so-experienced there is always an escape route. The trail winds through acres of enchanting Protea and Fynbos species with breathtaking views at every turn, until you reach Goudgat, 1000m above sea level, the official snow borderline of the Groot Toren area. Take the opportunity of spotting small game: klipbok, duikers, grysbok, dassies and Black Eagles.
