  • Hiking – Castle Gorge
    All day
    2020.03.01

    Meet leader: Sacha da Cunha tel:  072 277 6927  / email: magalieshike@gmail.com
    Castle Gorge is a hidden gem for hikers, featuring beautiful waterfalls, crystal clear pools and weathered rock formations,  that are great for swimming and photographing. While the walk-in to Castle Gorge is one of the longest, it’s also one of the most beautiful.  A fairly steep walk from the car (with plenty of shade to rest under) levels onto a sunny plateau before dropping into the Gorge.   The path is excellent which makes the going relatively easy and as such the hike can still be done in a comfortable hour.  The final descent into the Gorge is a little tricky and exposed.

    Numbers will be limited so pre-booking with Sacha is essential.

Message from our Chairman:

To all Mountain club members in Gauteng - please note that due to some attempted access to our properties during lockdown we would like to reiterate that access is suspended until relevant lockdown regulations deem it legal.  Currently, we suspect that this will only be in level 2 or 1 as both inter-provincial travels is required (Magaliesberg is largely in the North-West) and, more critically, hiking and climbing are not considered essential activities.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards
Stephen Hoffe
