With a 4x4 trail winding through mountain fynbos and revealing spectacular views of the rugged Cedarberg Mountains, Marcuskraal offers an unsurpassed experience for nature lovers and 4x4 enthusiasts. While most of the trails are suitable for novice 4x4 drivers, there are more challenging obstacles that will leave even die-hard 4x4 enthusiasts with a sense of accomplishment upon completion.
The route leads drivers to the summit of the Osberg mountain with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. On a clear day it is possible to see the Atlantic Ocean in the distance from the summit. Approximately in the middle of the route, there is a bush camp with braai facilities and running water where visitors can rest and braai before continuing towards Dwarsrug.
The summit of Dwarsrug rewards visitors with spectacular views down a sheer cliff of the orchards, farm house and camp site in the valley far below. A short drive takes visitors back to the camp site. The 24 km route takes approximately 4 hours, excluding stopping time, to complete. The current rate for the 4x4 route amounts to R250 per vehicle.
