This first section is beautiful but rockery, so keep your eyes on the trail. From there we will cross the Berg river and traverse the other side of the mountain to the back of the dam.

Be ready for about 7 stream crossings and 3 beautiful waterfalls. From there, we will all go to Hey Joe Brewery for our lucky draws and Burger and Beer.
