    Hi, has anyone been up to Mariepskop recently? Can one go alone or do you need a guide/permission from Forestry?


    Thanks

    Hi

    We were last there in May. You will pay something like R30 per vehicle to enter at the forests' guard/gate although I have an idea this varies depending on the guard. Good tar road once inside, amazing view and vegetation. There is a hiking trail in forest if you are interested.

    Also, there is a picnic spot right next to Blyde river - you will see signage which says Mariepskop to the right, picnic to left once you are at the foot of mountain. This is also worthwhile. Same story R30 per vehicle at the the gate. The drive down to picnic site takes about 20 minutes one way.

    The roads that lead up to Mariepskop not so good though...

    Oh and you do not need a guide although they sometimes insist on going along (for tips you see)
