Hikes – Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve – Uitkyk Trail


Experience Franschhoek offer guided hiking adventures in the Franschhoek Mountains in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, the Berg River Conservation Area and at La Motte.

The Uitkyk Trail is in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve and is a moderate 2-3 hour hike of about 6kms.
