The Katberg lies in the midst of the Winterberg Mountains, west of Hogsback – known for its incredible mountains and snow capped winters. A beautiful and serene area Katberg is easy on the eye, its intermittent tracts of indigenous forest that line the ravines of the Katberg Pass punctuated by waterfalls and pine plantations, whilst in the valley below there are a series of citrus and lucerne farms.

The trails that traverse the Katberg tend to cluster around the Katberg Pass, a high altitude pass that winds in a series of switchbacks through the mountains. Many people design their own trails that take anything from an hour to six hours. But the Katberg Trail is a circular loop that makes use of the overnight mountain hut and takes two to three days to complete.

To book for the hikes contact the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry or at the Katberg Forest Station.
