Greyton Mountain Hiking Trail Route for Breakfast Rock Walk

The starting point of this mountain trail, in Greyton South Africa, is at the old Cape Nature Conservation camp at the bottom end of Nerina Street. Bypass the gate next to the camp (that leads into the Greyton commonage), go through the kissing gate and follow the jeep track to the left. After a few minutes take the right path that leads to the Gobos River. Cross the Gobos River and follow the track in front of you, this is the Boesmanskloof Trail. This trail continues for some distance, twisting, turning and climbing most of the time. Breakfast Rock will appear prominently on the left after about 3km. The view from here is excellent with the Gobos Gorge on one side and Wolfkloof, which is Greyton´s main source of water, on the other side. As the name suggests, this is a good place for hikers to relax and enjoy some refreshments, before starting back. The walk back is simply along the same route to the old Cape Nature Conservation camp, crossing the river and walking up Nerina Street.
