Dirt Addict Hike
Join us for a hike on the Krom River Trail
Trail distance: 7km
Estimated time: 5 hours
This easy, popular trail starts in Du Toitskloof, immediately to the left after the Worcester exit of the Huguenot Tunnel. Permit holders can park at a fenced parking area about 700m after the tunnel, on the left side of the road.
The trail winds back towards the tunnel. A sign beneath the two bridges shows you where to go. The trail crosses the Krom and Molenaars rivers. After crossing Krom River, the vegetation becomes dense at the top end of the kloof. The path to the Krom River waterfall is about 2.5km. The last section of this path is surrounded by indigenous riverine forest.
After the first waterfall, hikers will come to the second, truly spectacular, waterfall and large plunge pool (remember to bring your costume). Climbing between the first and second waterfalls can be tricky – we suggest that hikers carry a rope. This may be inaccessible in winter after heavy rains, when the river is difficult and dangerous to cross.
Permits are available at R50 per adult and R30 per child. Permits may be purchased at the reserve office or bookings can be made through CapeNature Central Reservations.
