Hiking Trails

St Fort Farm, the home of the Mushroom Rock, is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains that hug the Lesotho border. The Clarens Sandstone Formation creates a landscape littered with overhang caves, ravines, nooks and crannies, and hidden valleys begging to be discovered.

When one looks closer, the rich heritage that we share with our predecessors is experienced. Remnants of the Basotho culture as well as artifacts from the Boer War are occasionally discovered while exploring. One is privileged to behold Bushman Paintings that grace the walls of overhang caves.

St Fort Farm offers 4 expertly laid out hiking trails that can be enjoyed by young and old, experienced and adventurous hikers, and by those who are just learning to discover the joys of hiking.
All these trails take you through differing landscapes, from breathtaking mountain views and overhang caves, to river walks with numerous picnic spots, forest ambles, and boulder hopping in and along gorges.
