The White Elephant Hiking Trail is an eight kilometre circular trail that passes through this site. There is also a much shorter, easier walk that spans only 450 metres and follows a wooden walkway to accommodate wheelchairs and prams.

A minimal fee is required for the picnic area during the tourist season and there is a control boom. The Elephant Hiking Trail requires a permit, which you can obtain from the boom (when manned) or from the Diepwalle Forestry Station.
