Policemans Helmet



12.4km – Out & back – Moderate

Explore this 12.4-kilometer out-and-back trail near Drakensberg, Kwazulu-Natal. It’s generally regarded as a moderately challenging route, with an average completion time of 3 hours and 53 minutes, and it’s ideal for hiking, running, and leisurely walks.

Policeman’s Helmet Hike starts from the Tugela Gorge car park. This sandstone structure is visible a long way a way and really is well named. There is some beautiful San rock art along the way, fresh mountain springs, and a bit of forest to walk through. The path comes out into the valley alongside a fairly sheer drop, but nothing to worry about if you’re not afraid of heights. The start of the hike is gentle, and pleasant.
