Gorgeous views, trails are fairly easy to follow. Spotted lots of wildlife (eland, dassies, springbok, black spitting cobra, plenty of birds). The Bushman rock art is very special. All in all, a fantastic experience.

Setting off from the Travellers Rest Inn (and paying a 40 rand admission charge which included a trail map) we set off about 10:00 on a hot day to walk this trail. It is very clearly marked with white painted footprints and took us about three hours there and back. (We took our time to take pictures and did not rush!) There are 9 sites to see and the best is the last one! The walking is easy (trainers are all you need) although taking some water with sunscreen is essential! The rock art itself is fascinating – and well explained in the inexpensive English guidebook. Each site is clearly marked and very accessible. We learned a lot about the Sans culture whose paintings might be as old as 8,000 years old. This was a real highlight of our time in the Cedarberg. Incidentally the Travellers Rest is a great place to relax, eat and sample superb milk shakes. It was very quiet in February and I swam in their small dam (only 5 feet deep!) and enjoyed their small but practical shop.

We visited on a hot day and would definitely recommend taking water and hats. The art was interesting and the walk was beautiful. We deserved our drink in the restaurant at the end.

The scenery itself and just walking through the bush and over the colourful rocks is worth doing this. The art is interesting and the pamphlet explaining the pictures helpful.

The trail covers 9 separate locations with rock art.
We went with a guide from our lodge which made the trip much more interesting and informative.
Additionally he was able to print out rock art that we wouldn’t have even noticed.
Learning more about the past of our ancestors is always amazing.
Well worth a visit.
If you are a little older, like me, using a hiking stick will help you greatly as you go up and down the tracks to the art locations.

This wonderful 5km trail gives access to 7 different rock art pieces from the original people of the land. Wonderful tour guide who explained the mechanics and understanding of rock art also helped to bring it all to life for us. This is a must do activity in the area

Somehow, I expected somewhat more of this trail. It is not as easy a walk as stated, with some sites a bit difficult to get to. More Infos about how old the sites are and who did them were missing. The sites would be a great opportunity to talk about the San culture.

Our 9 and 12 year old girls enjoyed this. Such a nice activity. We started at 930 am and it was already very hot so I would advise arriving at 8 when they open.

It is like a treasure hunt with the map that you are given as your only tool to help you find the ancient wonders.

You get a glimpse into the terrain that these indigenous people of our land had to deal with.

The vibrant colours and detail of their drawings and paintings leaves you in awe. It’s fascinating how these have survived for 100s of years.

The water hole at the river is a nice half way spot to take a dip and freshen up.

Clambering on all the rock formations is an added bonus.
