The Greyton Conservation Society has been hard at work, with the help of the Greyton Municipality, to carefully mark walking paths and hiking trails in and around the village. Maermanskloof hiking trail is one of these.

Do not let the short duration of the hike fool you into thinking that it is easy. For it is both steep and demanding, climbing from 230m at its lowest point to 568m at its highest.

But the climb is worth it. Starting at the lower end of Nerina Street it begins by way of the stone gate, and follow the jeep track right ahead of you. It will take you up and over the rise. A little later look out for the Gobos River at which you take a right onto a small path that climbs further still.

Now you head out across a series of hills, tackling paths that look steep but are not as bad as they seem. The viewpoint is the highest point of the walk. From up here the views are incredible over the Riviersonderend mountains.

South of here you can now see the path that leads down into Maermanskloof valley. Follow this up the neck and down along a jeep track. On the descent you will cross another jeep track before coming to Weltevreden farmhouse. A bench a little further on affords a gentle break with views out over Greyton.

A zig-zag path takes you back down through the picnic site.
