Your experience will start at the entrance to the magnificent George forest in a safe and peaceful neighborhood. From the start you will be surrounded by magnificent trees, ferns, fynbos and fresh fragrant mountain air. The start is relatively easy,we will hike up through the forest and get onto the second mountain contour. Thereafter we will access single track paths and start to ascend to the Railway track and then the Cross... where already you will be in awe of the view extending from Mosselbay to Wilderness & Sedgefield along the coast and the beautiful Outeniqua and Montagu Pass along the interior & the beautiful city of George. The George Peak Experience will continue, with a significant change in gradient, areas where you will be scrambling on all fours and traversing some rocky outcrops. All the while your senses will be invigorated with the magnificent views, diverse fauna, fresh mountain air and brilliant stillness. Your physical fitness will also enjoy the challenge as you climb, scramble and trek towards the peak. The reward that awaits you at the top of George Peak at 1300m above sea level is incredible! Your sandwich and snack at the top of the Peak has never tasted so good! On the descent you will have an amazing "extreme" photo opportunity & your mind, body and soul will be invigorated by what you have experienced!
Il tuo host
Elaine, Susan & I are proud “Georgeites”; and daily we are grateful to live in this beautiful city. George Peak is one of the iconic features rising > 1300m above sea level, it is magnificent in its splendor. November 2018 was a sad time when the mountain was ravaged by fire; destroying fauna and flora. Post the Fire, the “Vertical” route up George Peak was opened and cleared by volunteers from GTR . Before this, the beautiful George Peak was accessed by a more “conventional” hiking trail. As Ladies with a passion for exercise, fitness and a challenge, we attempted the "Vertical" route and WOW the rest is history. Every Experience is Magical, whether it is the perfect day with 360-deg views or cloudy and misty “gorillas in the mist” experience! Being surrounded by such incredible beauty is invigorating.
