Blue Mountain Trail

Hike the Southern Side of the Elgin Valley

Blue Mountain Trail

Three days of slackpacking

Walking the wilderness along the southern side of the Elgin Valley

Following the success of the Green Mountain Trail, The Blue Mountain Trail was founded in 2015. This slackpacking, multi-day hike covering a 50km route through the UNESCO-declared Biosphere, offers sweeping views of the Overberg coastline, and close-up access to a unique plant life that literally gives the mountain its blue tinge. Wide open spaces, daily wine tasting, knowledgeable guides and overnights at Wildekrans Country House make this another bucket list experience in the Green Mountain collection.
