A popular pool only 4.5 km from Bushman's Nek camp. The pool is apparently named after Cedric Biggs, a leader of the Mountain Backpackers Club some years ago, who was known for plunging through the ice into the freezing pool.
It's also referred to as "Three pools" on some of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife maps and literature.
The route starting at the Bushman's Nek Office where you fill in the mountain register passes the South African border post. You then cross the stream three times (a turn to the right after the second stream takes you towards Bushman's Cave.)
You follow the path with the Ngwangwane River on your right. At 4 km's you cross the river and turn to your right, after 500m walking towards the river (on your right) you will find Cedric's Pool. The pool is a couple meters below the path level, walk down the path to the pool.
