The Otter Hiking Trail

DAY 2 - NGUBU HUTS TO SCOTT HUTS
Distance: 7.9 kilometers approx.
Av Hiking Time: 5.5 - 6 hours.
Highlights: Skilderkrans views and Bloubaai beach.
Be prepared for: Steep hills - lots of them.

Day 2 of the Otter Trail is probably the most varied day of the hike (and one of the toughest).

Forest, vynbos, views for whale and dolphin spotting, tough climbs, the Skilderkrans Quartz Promontory, and of course the bloubaai beach are just some of the things you pass through.

Just make sure you don't miss the turn off for Bloubaai beach. It is slightly off the trail but a great place for lunch. If you find yourself climbing a never ending hill then you have more than likely missed it (the turnoff is at the start of the major climb of the day - Once you reach the viewpoint at the top of the climb, you will be able to see the beach, but few are tempted to go back down the mountain...)

Scott Hut is situated on the Geelhoutbos River Mouth, a really beautiful setting.
