The Greyton McGregor Hiking Trail (also known as the Boesmanskloof Trail) is a 14km trail that winds through the Riviersonderend Mountains linking the towns of McGregor and Greyton. The trail may be hiked in one day, from either McGregor or Greyton. However, it’s really worth hiking over 2 days and staying overnight in either Greyton or McGregor. A large variety of accommodation is available in both towns.

The hike is spectacular, with steep gorges, large rock pools, waterfalls (The popular Oaks Falls) and beautiful Cape fynbos wildflowers. There is also plenty of birdlife and wild animals like: Duiker, Grey Rhebuck, Klipspringer, Baboon, Dassie, Spotted Genet and Leopards.

Physically, the Greyton McGregor Hiking Trail requires a reasonable degree of fitness.  The hike is situated in a winter rainfall area (generally cold and wet) and the summer months are extremely warm and dry. Although there are normally streams in the valley, water may be required during the summer months.
