    Scoutabout: Majakineng Hiking Trails, Magaliesberg

    All day
    2022.05.14-2022.05.15

    Meet Leader: Tam Scheidegger

    This 10km trail is well frequented by local Gauteng hikers, but perhaps we will skip the hike and scout about in the kloof to find some interesting new trad lines? There is no route guide as there are no known routes.

    The Eco Rangers would like us to set up some Abseils and Top Ropes that they can use for the kids from the local community.

    Bring your route finding eyes and a willingness to break new ground.
