    I'm walking the Whale Trail near Hermanus next month. I want to have the trail on my phone to check directions using the Gpx Viewer app. There used to be Gpx files for hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers all over the Web but I can't find them. Any ideas other than these expensive...

Does anyone have any ideas of where in Gauteng would be...

    Limpopo/Mpumalanga day hikes and accommodation June/July 2018

    So I've always been toying with the idea of road tripping out that way. The footage on TV and the web have always intrigued me and I'd like to get up there next winter. I believe the heat is bearable then and hiking-activities for me anyway are best suited in cooler weather. So I have...

    Preparation for hiking the Otter Trail

    Hey All. I've hiked the Otter Trail 4 times (over the past 4 years) and I'm booked again for next year. The trail is just too amazing.

    Anyone hiking in the Salomon Men's Speedcross 3 CS Trail Running Shoes?

    I'm pretty much a hiking noob and I'm thinking of getting these Salomons for hikes up table mountain, lion's head and devil's peak, etc... R1,800 seems to be the going price, e.g. Sportmans and Cape Union Mart when I checked last. Anyone using them for these types of hikes? How are they? I...

    The hiking thread!

    Cool, so this is a new hobby that I'm starting. I'm looking to do a couple half day / day hikes twice a month, and maybe look at doing a multi-day hike every 6 months or so. I was thinking it would be a great idea to start a thread where everyone can share where to go and any tips they might...

    Canadian couple stabbed in South Africa

    Source: CBC News Urgh... What a crap time of year to get stabbed (as if there's ever a "good" time). Also, I hardly think that crimes should be "extra uber not allowed" just because of the World Cup, they should be "extra uber not allowed" all the time! At least they're both okay, but...
