Cradocks Berg 1579m Hike


Activity Description

CradocksBerg 1579m and George Peak 1337m. These beautiful Outeniqua Mountains tower above George and form the iconic background to this coastal town.

The ascent of these two peaks is DEMANDING, we gain a respectable 1330m in altitude from base to the summit of Cradocks Berg, however the uninterrupted views of the Coast from Knysna to Mossel Bay, an eagle eye view of the surrounding Outeniqua peaks, pristine fynbos and of course the thrill of reaching the summit high above everyone else make this trail a delightful treat.
