It is the best trail for viewing the spectacular scenery of the Drakensberg Mountains. The other trails include the Eagle, Falls, Canyon, Jacobs Ladder, and the historically significant Gelib tree trail.

There is a variety of wildlife including duiker, eland, grey rhebuck and mountain reedbuck.

Trout fishing is also popular at Lotheni and a refreshing swim at the Cool Pools is a must.
