The Koumasoek Circuit is a hiking trail for the fit and experienced hiker, due to its arduous and long trail. With steep climbs and 14.7 km long length, this trail is not for the faint-hearted, although the natural beauty of unspoilt indigenous Fynbos and mountainous vistas, make the trail worth every step. The hike takes approximately 6 hours from beginning to end, through the mountains near the Robinson Pass.
Map and information is available at the Witfontein Nature Reserve Offices. Directions: From the N2, take the Oudtshoorn turn-off to Hartenbos. Drive 18.9km to the top of the Robinson Pass where the trail starts. Park at the old quarry just below the top of the pass. Take water, be prepared for mist.
