Wolfberg Arch Hike
The hike is classified as a strenuous full day walk from Dwarsrivier and is only possible once a permit has been acquired from the Dwarsrivier Farm along with a gate key and then follow their map to the start of the walk. This is a steep mountain walk with some minor climbing at the top to get into the largest of the Wolfberg Cracks, a narrow cleft in the mountain reaching 30m into the bowels of the Wolfberg (Caution should be exercised). The walk to this point should take you approximately 1½ hours to go up and from here you continue along the top of the mountain range for approximately another 1½ hours to the 15m high Wolfberg Arch. The arch is a well known landmark in the Cederberg area and the subject of numerous photos but nothing can do justice to this awesome creation of nature. The best way to return to the car park is back down the way you came as the other route, via Gabriel's Pass, is not marked as well. You should allow up to 8 hours for this hike.
From Cape Town, take the N7 turn-off on the N1 and, 28 km after Citrusdal, turn right at the Algeria/Cederberg sign. Continue past Algeria and over the Uitkyk Pass - about 46 km of gravel road - until you reach Dwarsrivier, also the home of the world famous Cederberg Wines. After the Sandrif resort, cross over the river and continue via the signposts for approx 1km up a gravel track to a small parking place. The total distance from Cape Town is approximately 250 km or 3 hours drive.
