There are two hiking trails in the Koeberg Nature Reserve. You will be able to pick up a good map and birding pamphlets at the info kiosk.

The Dikkop Trail is a circular walk (9.5 -23.3km) (meanders up north) which includes pristine strandveld, dune veld and a 2km walk along the beach. The walk is most spectacular in spring when the wild flowers along the route are in bloom. (reference: Koeberg visitors' centre).

The Grysbok Trail is a two hour walk starting at the Visitor Centre and includes a stretch along the beach and passes a salt marsh which is rich in birdlife in the winter months. The Grysbok Trail sidles around the main reactor, heading for the beach on the Cape Town side. It twists along the ridge of the dunes before winding down to the sea past a small salt-pan.
