    • Introducing You’re Gorgeous

      3Rivers opened a new trail in August, with You’re Gorgeous being added to the line up. The trail is an 800 m loop, dropping down into the gorge which lies to the left of the lower section of the Yellow Monkey and then climbing out the gorge along a non-perennial stream to join the Long Drop climb which then leads back to the Yellow Monkey.

    • New Trig Beacon Hike

      3Rivers has added a new hiking trail to it's already-large assortment of trails on offer. The trails have been built by Andy Wesson and his team - who have put countless hours into its construction - and traverse through the mountains and valleys of the Van Stadens range.

All hikes start from the Puttergill farm dam but hikers will need to sign in at the Crossways trailhead and obtain permission to enter through the Sunnyside entrance to the Puttergill farm. This can easily be done by phoning one of the contact numbers on the route boards at the trail head. The hike goes to the trig beacon on top of the Crossways mountain and is 7.3 kilometres long. Hikers should budget approximately 3 to 4 hrs to complete the entire loop. …
