Soul food for birders, botanists, hikers and nature lovers. If you need to relax, de-stress, or find your soul again then this is the place to do it.  To ensure this, we don’t allow music nor radios that could possibly ruin this for you.

We offer over 600 hectares of vast beautiful kloofs and awe-inspiring rock pools for you to experience the freedom of nature through comfortable walks or exciting trails.

Hiking Trails
 
Milorho has 2 beautiful hiking trails which has been designed by Master Trail developer Gerhardt van Greunen.  It has a 5km and a 13km
 
Brown Trail – 5km
 
The 5km trail is a treat for anyone.  The trail is easy and takes about 2 – 3 hours.
The ample beautiful rock pools and streams is sure a highlight on this trail.  The trail is suitable for beginners and kids.
 

Green Trail – 13km

 
The 13km is a moderate hike with one or two koppies and gorges to climb, the highest point on the trail is 1680m and rewards you with stunning views of the Magaliesburg.  The rock formations on the trail is something quite extraordinaire and be on the lookout for the rock that slightly overhangs on top of another rock, it looks like it has been perfectly placed there for your enjoyment.  Roughly 1km before you finish the trail, you are rewarded with a rock pool to cool down in and spend enough time there as you don’t have far to walk before you finish the trail.
