    Default Warm Bokkeveld Trail

    Hi All

    Just some feedback on this trail. The trail is not driven much, so it is a bit difficult in places to follow the trail as the centre bushes are as high as the surrounding veld. When wet (like now in winter) it turns into a mud fest, but it's thick and slow. The views of Ceres from the top of the mountain are beautiful. Due to it's lenght it is wise to start early as going is slow in places.

    Hi Ashley

    The trail is 23km, which will take you the better part of the day. There were tree of us (Disco, Fronteer and RR). This is a major no-no trail to try alone. I would rate it mostly 2/3 with quite a few obsticles going up to 4.
    You are going to walk 15kms back to Ceres if you try it alone and get stuck. I have mapped the trail and will forward it to T4A as it was not marked on the 611 version. Ground breaking stuff....:-)

    Hi Rangie

    Thanks for the info , cost? I am a firm believer of not doing a trail on your own no matter the grading , stuck happens quickly.

    Default Great Idea

    That's it OffRoad sounds good maybe in September we can arrange a club outing there. Next month is a bit hectic for me. Going to Nam at the end of Sept hopefully.

    Cost is R150 and you get a gate key (you pay them the R150) at Erica's Cafe (first cafe on your left as you enter Ceres from Cape Town side).
    Chat to the guy at the cafe as he can give you some finner tips regarding this trail. This trail is fun when wet, but probably boring when dry.

    Ouite correct, Ranger! I did it over New Year 2006 in the dry. Accommodation in old farmhouse was nice, tranquil, with clear starry skies, but trail was easy, with spectacular views from the top though. I can think it would become slippery in the winter, especially the lower parts.
