About The Harkerville Hike

The two day Harkerville hike starts gently; following paths through the forest that criss cross over horse and bike trails. However, the hard work starts as you reach the chain section. Not for the faint hearted, the rock face only has a very narrow ledge with space for feet and with a metal chain at chest level.

It’s all worth it though for the dramatic and breathtaking views of the beach. Although the Harkerville Hike is a difficult and at times relentless 27km hike, it is beautiful and the path is clearly marked and well maintained.
