Crystal Pools

_SGP5796Crystal Pools is a serious of deep natural pools found in the lower section of the Steenbras River that flows and cuts through the mountains, eventually entering the ocean along the mountainous coastline of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. A lovely 2km hiking route that follows the meandering Steenbras River offering spectacular views of the local Fynbos vegetation, mountain cliffs and possible sightings of the resident Verreaux (Black) Eagles. Beautiful waterfalls and cascades are found along this river.
