Suikerboschfontein Day Hikes

Carolina, Mpumalanga

The four circular trails have a total distance of 16 km, and there is natural clean drinking water on all. At the starting point is a flush toilet. The day hikes are marked with yellow footprints.
  • Grootkloof – 8km – Difficult
  • Tempelmurasie – 4km – Easy
  • Skeurkloof – 2.4km – Relatively Easy
  • Sederbeg – 2.2km – Easy

The route drops quickly to underneath the high cliffs, where it turns at a beautiful waterfall. It goes through thick indigenous forest with tall trees and crosses the stream various times. It has the same variety of terrain forms which are typical of Suikerboschfontein. The braai area with a gas braai is in the shadow next to a stream with a roof to offer shelter for rain. After this, the route crosses the stream once again before it joins the overnight trail at Oom Japie. It goes through the Skeurkloof and up the cliff with ladders and via Rooikrans back to the starting point.


Although the route was initially planned to offer day hikers the opportunity to see the ‘Dying Sun Chariot Temple’ too, it also offers a wonderful hiking experience. It has water, trees, rocks, and beautiful views over the cliffs.


This short but difficult trail also quickly drops to the valley at the stream where it joins the Grootkloofroete. It also goes through the Rooikranscamp and Skeurkloof back to the starting point.


The similarity in the rock formations on this trail with those in the Sederburgs is striking. Although it’s an easy, short route, there’s lots to see. It offers a beautiful view over the valleys and turns at a pool and small waterfall before it goes back to the starting point.
The day hikes’ starting point in about 300 metres south of Rooikranscamp on the route to Oom Japie. By staying over at Rooikrans a second night, overnight hikers can hike the day routes too.
