The walk is on a privately owned timber farm. To a large extent, it follows the Leerman Stream (a tributary of the Bitou) and has been carved through the indigenous bush. It crisscrosses the stream several times and most of it is under canopy. You will hear and see lots of indigenous birds, including Louries.
The walk is easy, but some of the stream crossings could be challenging to those less fleet of foot. This is not a manicured walk, such as those in the Harkerville forest, but I led a group of 45 active pensioners (mostly) through in February without incident.
No smoking permitted on the walk.
Although the walk is free, we would appreciate a donation to our local Fire Management Unit, who are the first response to wildfires in our area.
If you can’t get hold of me on my cell, send me a WhatsApp message and I will respond. Cell reception on farm is patchy at best!
COST: Free, but a donation to the FMU would be greatly appreciated.
EXTRA NOTES: Family Friendly. Forest Scenery. Relaxing walk. Suitable for keen walkers and anyone who is reasonably active.
DIRECTIONS: For sake of ease, I will meet hikers where our farm road meets the Stofpad, near Wittedrif at 08H45. Our turnoff is a few meters past that of Quarry Lake, but on the left-hand side of the road. Our turnoff is the last one on the left-hand side before the Stofpad changes to dirt. We will then travel in convoy to where the walk starts.
VERY IMPORTANT: Although our farm road is quite fine for Off-road vehicles, bakkies and even vehicles with reasonable clearance, low-slung luxury vehicles will battle. If you don’t have a vehicle with decent clearance, please make arrangements to get ferried in. See Google maps below for directions on your phone.
