Die roete begin in die Reservaat oos van Stilbaai, die hele gebied tussen die dorp en die vliegveld. Dit bestaan uit verskeie roetes van verskillende lengtes en neem van twee tot vier ure om te voltooi. Die hele roete is 4 tot 8 km lank en is maklik tot gemiddeld.

Jy word aangeraai om gemaklike loopskoene aan te trek, so ook ‘n hoed en genoeg sonblok. Onthou ook ‘n bottel water, eetgoed, jou kamera en so ook ‘n verkyker.

Die roete neem jou deur fynbos en leiklip en jy mag dalk ‘n grysbokkie, duikertjie of bosbokkie sien. Daar is ook verskeie voëlspesies en plantspesies wat van nader bekyk kan word. So ook is daar ‘n verstommende uitsig oor die see en die kus met die unieke geur van die fynbos altyd teenwoordig.

Daar is byekorwe in die reservaat, so wees asseblief versigtig om hulle nie te versteur of te hinder nie.
