Maltese Cross Hike


The hike to the iconic Maltese Cross must surely count as one of the top 10 most popular hikes in the Western Cape. This 7,5km trail takes one on a moderate out and back hike up the mountain to marvel at the huge sandstone Cross which has been left behind after millions of years' erosion around it.
