Amatola Hiking Trail – REPAIRS
I would like to let the Hogsback Community know what is happening with
the Amatola Hiking Trail. Last year I, and the Let’s Hike Hiking Club
from East London had a meeting with DAFF & ECPT&A and started the
“Friends Of Amatola Hiking Trail”. Our objective is to get the trail
back up to standard again. Let’s Hike Hiking Club has done some amazing
repairs to the huts, and they are busy marking the trail too. This has
been done over weekends and hopefully will be on-going until the trail
is in good shape again. The club received a donation from “Trail Runners
Club” from Cape Town and the Hiking Club has also donated money. Maureen
Marais, the chairman & other hikers, have done wonderful work on the
huts. It is very important to save this trail, and hikers also love
spending time in Hogsback after the trail.
The “Friends Of Amatola Hiking Trail” would like to know if any of the
community in Hogsback would like to help with this project. Please
contact me for info.
We noticed some old, awful write-ups on the HBT Website and just want to
add this bit of good news.
