Noupoort Walk

The Noupoort Walk is an easy walk allowing you to enjoy the best of the Greyton Nature Reserve. This is one of a number of easy walks in and around the tiny Overberg hamlet of Greyton.

Getting there: follow the Main Road through town in the opposite direction from which you arrived on the N2. At the end of the road take a left into Nerina Street, and at the end of Nerina Street take a right into Park Street. The Greyton Nature Reserve is at the end of this road.
Distance: 1.5km
Difficulty: an easy stroll
Entry fee: entrance is free

There is a super, informative map at the entrance to the Greyton Nature Reserve, and there are signs inside the reserve clearly marking the routes. This walk heads toward the back of the reserve where you will see the deep ravine, Noupoortkloof. The trail is easiest to follow in a clockwise direction, heading along the bank of the river, across the Noupoort stream on the small wooden bridge, and back along the opposite bank. The return trip wanders up the slope of the valley ever-so-slightly, so if you are feeling extremely lazy return along the way you came.

There must have been a fire in the Reserve a few months back. It appears not to have spread to far, and didn’t reach into the upper reaches of the valley you are walking in.
