The new Cederberg 100 Trail.

The new Cederberg 100 Trail will be inaugurated in Clanwilliam on Monday 13th August 2012. This is a seven day/eight night, 100km “slackpacking” trail running between the top of the Pakhuis Pass in the north to the Driehoek Resort in the central Cederberg. Two teams of six persons each will participate in the inauguration. Both teams will spend the night of 13th in Clanwilliam. On Tuesday 14th one team will start hiking southwards from the top of the Pakhuis Pass and the other northwards from Driehoek. Both teams will follow the same route, but in opposite directions. From the top of the Pakhuis Pass the route leads down via Amon se Vlak, Amon se Poort and Die Toring to Boskloof for the night. On the second day the route goes up Krakadouwpoort and over Krakadouw Pass to the Moravian village of Hueningvlei for the night. On the third day the route heads south via the Boontjieskloof Hut and Boontjieskloof to Brugkraal for the night. On the fourth day the route carries on south via Grasvlei, the spectacular waterfalls on the Grasvlei River and over Middelkopnek to Kleinvlei for the night. The route on the fifth day makes a deviation up Dassieboskloof for views of Skerpioensberg and Sneeukop and then proceeds to Eselbank for the night. On the sixth day the route goes over the mountain (weather permitting) to the little village of Langkloof for the night. On the last day the route goes over Gabriel’s Pass, with a deviation to the Wolfberg Arch, to Driehoek, where the group is met and conveyed back to Clanwilliam for the eighth night.
