Pack the right gear and embark on the Botterboom Hiking Trail. This two and a half day hike begins at the Veldskoen Padstal and you must obtain a permit from here before you start the trail. The first day leads you up and along the top of the mountains near Osplaas and rewards you with picturesque views of the valley and Matroosberg Mountains. As you descend, you will cross the railway line and then spend the night at Scooby Doo hut.

Day Two of the hike starts on the lower mountains and moves its way up the Appaskop (to a height of 850m). The view is splendid and you are able to see the entire Hex River Valley. If you are a more experienced hiker, there is an option to hike across the old railway bridges to the Kaffrarian Rifles Monument and on then to Tafelberg which is the highest peak in the region (1100m). The bonus of this route is that you get views of not only the Valley but also the Koo Valley to the east. Overnight accommodation is provided at the Tunnel Railway Station - tents, firewood and fresh water are provided.

The final day meanders back down the Osplaas Valley and follows the railway service road back towards Veldskoen Padstal. As always make sure you take warm clothing, sun block and plenty of drinking water!
