Long time since I walked the Guinea Fowl Trail. Will have to do it again sometime.
where does this trail start? i stay close to herbert hurd and i know there is an entrance at their fields. is this the one?
The Lower Guinea Fowl basically starts at the 3rd Avenue Dip and follows the Baakens Valley past Dodds Farm and ending either just off Target Kloof or in Settlers Park. These steps are at Dodds Farm which can also be reached from 9th Avenue in Walmer.
Any idea on why the names were so given? Who was Dodd and did they practice in Target Kloof?
We used to start the Guiney Fowl trail from the far side of Sunridge park, on Kragga Kamma, just opposite the tips and walk straight through to Settlers, often with no buildings in sight. If you feeling a bit tougher, you can start walking from Groenbossies, by the tower, but i'd check the maps first, it's a bit of a crisscross with dirt roads and trails out there. Some stunning views between Fernglen and William Moffet btw
