THERE is a brilliant new map available for the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve which will help visitors to easily find their way in the reserve.
It took over a year to prepare and design but it is now available at the Kloof Falls and Nkutu Picnic sites. For the first time the map includes trail descriptions and these should assist hikers and runners to pick a route they can manage and not get lost.
The descriptions give details of trail which route marker numbers are on the trail as well as the estimated duration and difficulty of each trail. The map also includes descriptions of three longish (and difficult) loops which combine a number of trails.
These will be useful for those that want to do longer hikes.

As part of the redesign it was necessary to change some of the colours used to describe the trails and new trail direction markers have now been installed which match what is on the new map.
All the route markers have been repaired and some new route markers have been installed to reduce the possibility of people getting lost.

The back of the map contains a wealth of information on the biodiversity of the reserve as well as basic safety rules and some regulations which apply in the reserve. The information covers the history of the reserve, geology, flora as well as information on species such as mammals, birds and reptiles.

The map was designed by trail runner and frequent visitor to the reserve, Colin Farris from Telegraph Road Graphic Design who was able to translate his knowledge of the reserve into a very user friendly and attractive document which will be a big asset for visitors to the reserve.
