Happy Valley Trail
Hiking in Bainskloof
There are several hikes in the Bainskloof area (and even a swimming hole or two) but permits must be acquired from Cape Nature first. Try the Happy Valley Trail, which is an easy out and back for beginners and takes you past a monument commemorating the 1895 Witte River disaster. Hiking is not recommended in the winter, when the river can be very full.
