Rainbow/Khotso Clamber

Trails – Steep bridge at end of Khotso Clamber – back to tar road at Mt Grace

Distance: 17km
Ascent: +-100m
Difficulty: 5/10
Markers: Orange arrows

Not much climbing on this trail as it starts with 5 – 8km of the beautiful flowing trails right next to the river.

There are also bends, dips, turns bridges and some rocky sections to keep you constantly awake & interested. So, as much as you would love to just stare at the beautiful view………better to stop and do that. Otherwise one wrong twitch – and you will be in the river.

After crossing the tar road and riding the Rainbow Valley (again right next to a little stream) you start making your way back via the Khotso cliffs. Lovely views of the Umzimkulu River from a slightly elevated position – but again beware, as there a number of technical sections along this home stretch before getting back to the tar road at Mt Grace. Cross the tar road and back-track on Intshitshi Spoor and Mzimkulu Run above to the Olde Duck for a stunning cappuccino from the local Barista.
