Oorlogskloof Mountain and Gorge Run

Oorlogskloof Mountain and Gorge Run

Venue: Oorlogskloof Nature Reserve, Nieuwoudtville

The deep gorges, cliffs, cracks under the mountain, plateaus covered in stands of Cape Sugar bush and large Waboom trees, massive rock pillars, caverns, rock arches, Crystallised Dassie – Rock Hyrax as old as 400 000 years, ancient rock art, moon-crater like sandstone rock slabs etc. No words can describe this place!! The Oorlogskloof Mountain and Gorge run routes follows a combination of hiking trails. At one point the trail leads to underground, cliff and mountain and participants are advised to carry a small head torch for this section. The cell phone reception is sketchy and mainly on the South and East side of Oorlogskloof – from around the halfway mark to the finish but only on high lying areas.
