The Boland Hiking Trail has two overnight huts within the reserves boundaries - the Landdroskop hut and the Boesmanskloof hut. Huts are provided with bunks, mattresses and water. Several overnight hiking routes can be undertaken that vary in length from two to three days.

The Hottentots Holland MTB trail is an easy circular route that meanders through the plantations and fynbos surrounding the parking lot by the park's office. This trail is fairly flat and suitable for all cyclists.
