Elandsberg Stanley's Light Trail

Location: Ladismith, off the road to Hoekoe, Western Cape, 

Overview: 
The approx. 14 km trail path has been recently cleared (Sept 2010) and although in good condition, still needs care on the steep rocky sections.

Key Statistics
Grade:  1 ****  14km on fairly good path
Height gain:  approx 750mfrom 650m to 1420m
Time:  5 to 9 hrs depending on party

Route Description: 
A pleasant trail, with an interesting background as it resulted from Stanley de Witt's idea of placing a light visible from Ladismith, which was powered by a waterwheel generating the electricity from a perennial stream high up on Elandsberg (also called Toringberg).
