Kogelberg to Harold Porter Walk

roncorylus

Our walk this morning from Kogelberg offices to Harold Porter was attended by 11 members.  We had very good walking weather and, as usual, the Kogelberg did not disappoint!  The fynbos was absolutely splendid with an endless carpet of flowers along the entire route, except in the forests where the streams were flowing and we had some welcome shade.

The Mimetes were abundant as were the Leacadendrons and Leucospermums, and there were endless Ericas and Brunias. At times we waded through Gnidias, which towered above us, all the while hearing the calls of the local birds, especially the Sombre Greenbuls and Grassbirds.

Our walk took just over 4 hours to complete the 8.2 km, but we were feeling the pain on the steep parts and proceeded fairly slowly.  I attach the map and stats from my hiking app.
