Walk to the Lower McIntosh Falls. There are a number of walks, but this one is special. 11kms and it will take about 3.5 hours.
Description of walk : Beautiful walk but challenging if you are unfit. There is an interesting and easy climb to the Cascade. Climb up the Cascade
and then a hike to the lower McIntosh Falls and back. This walk is through forest so cool under the canopy.
There is also, a small and easy river crossing where you can take your boots off, if you want to keep your toes dry.
Giba gives the option of a walking guide which is fantastic, if he is available. So call ahead.
“The trails are awesome! I was visiting Durban to teach… a course. I rented one of the bikes from Giba and we spent the next few hours riding some really nice single track. The rental bike was decent but the trails were very well done. There are many miles of tracks ranging from easy to fairly difficult. We took a few routes that had us run through some very well designed rock gardens. We rode about 20% of the park but had such a great time! All of the employees were really friendly and knowledgeable. The trails were well designed and drained well from the rain on the previous day. If you enjoy biking and you live or visit Durban, you don’t want to miss this great place!”
