Just beyond Bergville, on the R74 to Winterton, turn right at the Cathedral Peak Hotel sign. After about 16km turn right to Emmaus/Cathedral Peak.It is approximately 31km to Cathedral Peak.

Turn left onto the R74 to Winterton/ Bergville. (Ignore the apparently shorter route from Estcourt through Loskop - a section of this road is currently rough gravel. Marked with a red arrow on the map.) Turn left onto the R600 in Winterton, and turn right after approximately 1km to Cathedral Peak. After 11km there is a T-junction. Turn right and almost immediately left to Emmaus/Cathedral Peak. It is about 31km to Cathedral Peak Hotel.
