About Swartberg Hiking Trail

Experience the magic of the Swartberg Mountain Range on this awesome hiking trail. The Swartberg Hiking Trail is a challenging route that takes two days to complete. The first day covers 12.8 kilometres, while the second is a full 13 kilometres. The views are breath-taking, making the added effort well worth it for experienced hikers.

There is a shorter route for hikers and walkers that are less fit. However, this is still not an easy route and should not be attempted by the inexperienced.

The Swartberg Mountains are sometimes decked with snow in the winter months of July and August, and are very cold during the course of this season. Therefore, this trail should not be attempted during winter, unless hikers are very experienced and very well equipped.
