The Uitkyk Trail is a one day close to and overlooking the Haartbeespoortdam. The land has been in the Rissik family for over several generations and subject to conversation programme by the family.The trail is well laid out and marked and affords spectacular views of the mountain range and views below.

The trail starts from a fenced car park area on the Rissik estates and descends to cross over the main road and ascends to the mountain tops. The ascent is quite steep in some places ad can be quite tough when the weather is hot.There are spectacular views from the top, the Magalies mountain range stretches away in both directions as far as the eye can see. Hartebeespoortdam is a sight of splendor, worth the climb in itself.

After a rest on the mountain edge, hikers again rejoins the trail and on the way down, passes some lovely rock pools on the way back to the base camp.

The trail shouldn’t take more than 5 hours but for the fitness fanatics half that time. Its advisable to take an easy pace and enjoy the outing and stunning scenery.

Look forward to seeing you there!
