Wilderness Half Collared Kingfisher Trail

The trail starts on the west bank of the Touw River and joins up with the Giant Kingfisher Trail on the east bank of the Touw River that leads to the waterfall. You cross the Touw River with a pontoon.

There are also numerous picnic spots to stop over next to the river.

The end of the trail is the Touw River Waterfall. The waterfall offers gorgeous pools for dipping, and taking a picnic basket is a good idea.
