About Angel's Wing Trail

This is one trail that you need to book in advance, so forward planning is required. As a two day hike, the Angel’s Wing Trail in Clarens is popular and a great weekend break away from the city.

Leave your vehicle at the secure parking lot that is well signposted off the R712 Golden Gate Road. You are then collected and transported up the mountain in a 4x4 vehicle to the Ouma’s Kraal overnight hut. The hut is equipped with basic facilities including abulutions.

On your first day out on the trail you’ve cover 11.5km which starts off as an easy walk on the farm road before starting your ascent, which will provide gorgeous views. If you’re there in the warm summer months you can cool yourself off as quickly as 2.5km from the start as there is a small stream in the bottom of the gorge.

The first day will allow plenty of opportunities to cool off in streams and rockpools or just enjoy a sandwich under a shady tree. After a gradual ascent up the mountain you’ll level off at around 7km at the saddle and after another kilometre you’ll begin your decent to the hut where you’ll spend the night.

Day two is approximately 8km in distance and takes you back to your vehicle. Once again you’ll encounter plenty of opportunities to dip in to the water before making the steep ascent to the end of the trail.
