Miaspoort Trail

Interning over the June-July holidays meant I had endless free time over the weekends. Estelle and I thus decided to head up to the Italian Prisoner of War cross on the top of Hugenoot peak.

We parked on the Du Toitskloof pass and made the steep ascent. Bright yellow tolbosse and Wabome (Protea nitida) lined the path up to the neck. From the neck we had a stunning view of the Du Toits mountains, the N1 and the Hawekwas mountains.

Perdekop Trail
