The mountain road leads through the farm, up the mountain and into the fynbos reserve where numerous birds & wildlife roam freely. The drive ends at a breathtaking viewpoint over the Overberg. From here it is a short walk through the yellowwood forest with 60m high trees, up the stream to the waterfall. This trail is self-drive only and 4 x 4 vehicles are recommended.
