We recently headed up a group to hike the Amatola Trail for the second time. We did it first in 2016, and found the distance markers inaccurate, sections of the trail needing urgent maintenence, and the trail markers lacking, resulting in us going off the path several times.
After discussions with Friends of the Amatola Trail, Dan from Away with the Fairies, and DAFF, we receives permission to remark the trail with correct distances, and update the trail markings to help stick to the correct route.
We have updated our blog post to give full details on the hike and huts, including prep, booking, training hikes and anything else you may need to know.

For anyone who hasn’t attempted the Amatola Trail yet, you definitely need to add it to your bucket list. It’s phenomenal!
