We went early to walk this trail and we were glad we did as we didn't see another person until we started to head back to the car! The rates were quite expensive if your a foreign national, 160 rand, but for my partner we thought the rate was very reasonable, 48 rand. The trail itself is very well maintained and looked after with rest and picnic stops along the way. The water fall at the end of the trail is beautiful and relaxing place to spend some time. The trail itself was about 8km long and was a nice way to spend our morning!

After convincing the kids to do this hike, they were very grateful at the end of the day, as this was one of the best day hikes we’ve done...up there with Robberg in Plett. Easy to find off the main road in wilderness, proceed to the SANPARKS Wilderness entrance and make your way to the Ebb and Flow North section where you park your car. Walk across the bridge to the starters hut for the entrance permit, credit cards were accepted and too pricey for SA residents (R48pp). During Covid, only the route west of the river I s open and according to my GPS watch, measured close to 9km in total, more than the advertised 7.6km. Easy walking through mostly cool, shady forest the hike is well marked and in pristine condition except for some unsightly rock graffiti at the waterfall (who does this?). The pontoon river crossing to the east bank is fun, 1.5km from the start. The extensive boarded walkways were most welcome. Credit to the ubiquitous Staff noted along the route, keeping the area neat and tidy. Do take care of the slippery sloping rocks leading to the refreshing top pool. Allow around 3-4hours for an unforgettable experience.

Stunning scenery and beautiful views! A not-too—strenuous walk between the lush forest while you’re surrounded by crisp and clear bird songs. We opted for the longer walk, with a bit of a climb and decided to cross the river at the stepping stones instead of the pont. We were not disappointed, it was breathtaking and made the cool mountain pools and waterfall a very welcome and refreshing destination. We were spoilt with close up sightings of the elusive Knysna Loerie, the cherry on the cake! Beautifully maintained by people who are obviously passionate about this South African gem!

A beautiful walk through the forest leading to the waterfall. Maintenance is impeccable and the route left me gobsmacked in all its beauty. Very safe. Walked about 2 hours with a good pace and will definitely be back.

We decided to stay in Wilderness for one night specifically to do this walk and we were not disappointed. The trail starts at the Ebb and Flow North Rest Camp and you need to buy a permit from the hut at the start of the walk. The walk is mostly shaded and on the flat unless you decide to take the detour which is quite a climb but gives stunning views from the top. The walk ends at the Waterfall; on the journey back you cross the river by pontoon which was good fun. I would highly recommend this walk if you are in the area.
