When going on a hike please ensure you have a map which can be purchased from most of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife regional reserves or at the head office in Pietermaritzburg.

This is a great 3 hour (6,6km circular route) moderate walk through an indigenous forest to a magnificent grotto with waterfall and pool. The water can be cold as not too much sun shines into the pool.
After the pool head up the hill to Barry's Grave. Dick Barry was one of the early mountaineering pioneers of the area and fell to his death off Monks Cowl in 1938 at the tender age of 22.
The hike starts from in front of the Drakensberg Sun and is one of the most scenic routes in the area.
