About Walk the Lower Guinea Fowl Hiking Trail

Walk the Lower Guinea Fowl Hiking Trail. The walk is a 7,5 km trail which is accessed from the 3rd Avenue dip in Newton Park, leading down to Settler’s Park and Brickmakers Kloof.

The trail meanders along the edge of the Baakens River flood-plain, and passes through a steep-sided valley below the city suburbs for its full length. The trail offers an accessible walk of considerable interest ranging from wildflowers, trees and blue water lillies to fauna such as dassies, leguaans, tortoises and lizards.

The area is also excellent for bird-watching. It is important to note that, as the trail is not a circular one, arrangements need to be made to collect hikers at the Settlers ark Chelmsford Avenue entrance, off Target Kloof or at the main parking area just off How Avenue, Park Drive.
