Highlands & Lowveld

OVERVIEW

Graskop is surrounded by mountains, valleys, forest and waterfalls and located at the beginning of the famous Panoramic Route along the Blyde River Canyon.

On your bike

A well balanced 26km route from the town of Graskop. The trail starts off on the west side of Graskop, making its way through the forest and valleys down to the hidden Forest Falls, Maria Shariah and then climbing back up the escarpment, joining the Fanie Botha Hike coming back into Graskop. This  trail can be very slippery and wet, semi-slick tyres are not recomended. The trail is well balanced BUT it starts off at 1400m goes down to 1100m and comes back up, so this trail works the other way around.

Off the bike

You are totally spoilt for choice of stunning sites in the area with site such as MacMac Pools & Falls, The Pinnacle, God’s Window, Berlin Falls, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Lowveld Viewsite, the Three Rondavels and Lisbon Falls.
