Hike the Karee Trail, Magaliesburg

6.8 Miles Total - 1099.1 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Jack van der Linde

This is a perfect hike for somebody who wants a short-ish hike in the Magaliesburg, It's also great for beginners. 

1st you start at 1358.2 meters above sea level, in the valley. You walk bellow the cliff for about an hour you then hike up onto it and walk for about 3 hour at roughly 1550 meters above sea level on top of the ridge which is spectacular. 

After you have done some beautiful sight-seeing you drop down back into the valley at about 1300 meters above sea level and are greeted with an alluring view of the valley. 

You can stay overnight at a hut which has 12 beds with mattresses, running water, a functioning kitchen and bathroom, and electricity. 

If you are sleeping in the hut you will need to contact Rustig  http://www.rustig.co.za/contac... and tell them that you want to do the Karee trail with overnight stay.

If you are just doing it in a day then you will need to contact Rustig  http://www.rustig.co.za/contac... and tell them that you want to do the Karee trail http://www.rustig.co.za/hiking... 

Now you just have to hike to the hut or back down to the reception.

There is no place to fill up with water on the hike unless you are staying in the hut overnight.
