Weather changes quickly in the mountains so plan your hike carefully, always take warm and wind resistant clothing along, even if the forecast is sunny. Hiking sticks/trekking poles are often welcome companions on the steep decent down.
Permits: Self-issue permits are free and can be obtained from the foyer of the office by the start of the trails. Alternatively an permit will be issued by Cape Nature at the main gate during office hours. Please adhere to the rules of the reserve at all times and respect others and nature.
