Things To Do

Spookdraai Hiking Trail

Starting the Spookdraai trail as one drives into L’Agulhas from Struisbaai, you walk on the shoulder of the main road, following the clearly marked little white painted ghost signs. A tricky little rocky beach section, followed by gravel and a short dash across the main road leads you to the start of a 2.6km single track section up and over the mountain. The quad buster to the top of the ridge is rewarded with stunning views of the coastline, but make sure you look where you step, as the trail is tricky with lots of roots, eroded sandstone rock banks or the odd slithering critter. After ascending and descending a couple of small valleys, you finally drop down again to the main road below the mountain. It is possible to do the route both ways, so for a nice challenge turn around when you reach the end, and do it all over again in the opposite direction.
