More details about this hike

De Wildt Adventure Trails

We aim to provide a gay, lesbian and straight-friendly hiking environment for anyone and everyone to enjoy the beautiful outdoors in the company of like-minded friends.

De Wildt Adventure Trails


Well marked trails to the top with an optional summit loop or a foothill meander allow you to choose between a recreational or athletic pace with the easy option of turning back at any stage all culminating in a forested picnic area. This is the most pleasant northern ascent of the Magaliesberg

Peglerae (9km or 12.5km with Ktatu loop) with 360m summit ascent

Kiepersol (5km) forest walk

Since the picnic area is a few hundred metres from the car park a trailer will be provided for Dayhikers and your cool-boxes and charcoal will be transported there. Alternatively a burger and chips for R75 and a cold-drink for R15 can be purchased there (vegetarian options also available). R110 (including club fee) is payable at the gate . Your meal order may also be paid for there.

If recreation is not your only goal you may want to measure yourself against the Drakensberg visit we hope to offer later in the year: Please check Upcoming Hikes for details as they appear.
