If you're looking for a hiking trail that is a little steep in a few places, but generally easy enough for an average level of fitness, Giant's Cup trail fits all the requirements. Bring your children along and enjoy a scenic trail through the Cobham State Forest and Garden Castle.
Running along the foothills of the Drakensberg, from Sani Pass to Bushman's Nek, Giant's Cup trail consists of five sections, with overnight accommodation at the end of each section. The accommodation is usually in a farmhouse, providing a place of rest and shelter before another day's hiking.
The climate at these altitudes varies from month to month: nights are cool in summer and very cold in winter. Snowfall can occur during any month of the year, and rain falls predominantly in summer, when mists and low cloud are common. Winter and autumn days are usually warm and mild, but rapidly changing weather conditions means that anything is possible, so hikers are advised to pack accordingly.
