we live on the golf estate next to the trail. My wife and I walk this trail on a regular basis and it is safe. If you are in Mossel Bay, contact me and we will walk with you, it is very beautiful.

The trail starts at the St Blaize cave (underneath the lighthouse). You can turn back whenever you want, or go all the way to either Pinnacle Point Golf Club, or Dana Bay.
