The trail offers a spectacular view of Mpophomeni and Midmar Dam.

Back in 2017, a friend of mine, Sphamandla Mabaso from Mpophomeni, took me on a hike along the hilltops of our township.

The journey to the kwaDulela rural settlement was long and arduous. By the time I was halfway there, my knees were feeling like jelly and my chest was pumping like an old 1 400 engine.

It was all worth it though, because what we saw at the end was the most amazing view of southern Pietermaritzburg and the outskirts.
