5 Hiking Trails to try near Joburg

Hiking has been one of my favorite forms of exercise since grade school camp days, it made me fall in love with nature and how relaxing it is to take a brisk long walk on a back drop of luscious greenery. Every other Saturday, a group of friends and I spend our morning exploring new trails whilst breaking a good sweat. This morning was no different and after not having had been on a hike for a while , I was thrilled to be back.
