The trail starts at the iconic Preller house. This historical house was named a national monument in 1973 and was the home to Gustav Preller, a well-known journalist and historian. It's a circular route around the property which takes you past the Broederstroom Hills and Crocodile River. It boasts a vast landscape of open grasslands, a forested riverine, and beautiful mountain views. This trail has a few steep climbs but is easily navigated. There are several lookout points along the Crocodile River, which make good spots for a quick breather or a well-deserved snack. The trail is well-marked and maintained.

Field Notes:

My Merrell shoes never disappoint in providing me with grip and stability. Sunscreen with additional sun protection is a must even in our cooler months. Electrolytes/hydration/energy snacks are always a winner.
