Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve

The Hottentots Holland Mountains is a very popular hiking area with spectacular views across the Cape Winelands and as far as the Cape Peninsula.

The terrain is generally very rugged. Slopes tend to be steep and the rocky surface demands a good pair of hiking boots.

The Palmiet Trail is a 6 km (2 hours) circular route is a very easy walk and suitable for young children and the elderly.

The 22 km Groenlandberg Trail is a fairly challenging trail that should takes approximately 7 hours.

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.

The Sir Lowry's Pass 4x4 Route is a 20 km moderately challenging route that winds its way up from the pass , through mountain fynbos and finally into the plantation near the office.
