Walked the portion from the Pinnacle gold course back to the lighthouse and Mossel Bay. Beautiful views, lots of birdlife, both out at sea and in the fynbos.

The trail starts at the St Blaize cave (underneath the lighthouse). You can turn back whenever you want, or go all the way to either Pinnacle Point Golf Club, or Dana Bay.
