This reserve on the edge of the Howick Falls is a true gem, rarely explored but breath-takingly scenic! Single track hugging the edge of the valley with thick bushveld, aloes and game as spectators.

In this, the winter edition of the WESSA Trail Run, uMngeni Valley will provide a different experience of the trails compared to the event earlier in the year.

The Long Course will explore the clifftops and valley bottoms of the reserve, while the Medium Course traverses the Black Eagle trail, a favourite of Andrew & Lauren’s! The Short Course is not without its challenges, into the upper reaches of an uMngeni tributary.


KZNTR KidZone available for children 2yrs+, so parents can get out on the trails! Experienced childminders and stimulating, fun games – highlight being the WESSA Eco Treasure Hunt!


Bring along a picnic and choose one of the scenic sites to spend some time.
