Both the 20km and 40km routes provide beautiful views of the Gariep Dam and of the open Karoo landscape dotted with Karoo koppies. There are steep sections but overall the ascent is mild in trail running terms. A combination of vehicle tracks, dry waterways, animal paths and no paths are employed. Sections are rocky and suitable rough-terrain training is required.
Each route crosses twice under the R58 road. Runners on both routes will have to go through this low tunnel.
