Back in March my father and I did the Pass-to-Pass. The main path from the Outeniqua pass to Montagu pass was clear, but the path leading to Losberg was wildly overgrown. We followed the route for a bit, but soon gave up. Forward to December; Nic, Estelle and I retraced the (now cleared) path.

The trail is short, but highly rewarding. One walks though fields of heath and you will be sure to spot Protea aurea subsp. aurea, Mimetes cucullatus as well as many Keurbome. The two streams make for a wonderful place to stop and cool down on a warm day.

Lastly, the detour to Losberg is highly recommended. The view of Cradock Peak and the general surrounding Outeniquas is something usually reserved for those willing to tackle a more strenuous hike.
