About Skietfontein Hiking Trail

The Skietfontein hiking trail is an eight-kilometre walk along the riverbank of the Skietfontein settlement. The walk starts at the antique shop on Church Street in Carnarvon and passes by a spring, a graveyard, and the U.R. Church.

The trail will take you through the Karoo veld and the Karoo bossies, with magnificent views of the Karoo windmills, hills, and water fowl frolicking in the river.

At Skietfontein there are still remnants of the ancient stone houses used by the early settlers as well as traditional Karoo houses.
