Fish Eagle Trail

Fish Eagles fly and swoop. With precision they have an uncanny ability to snatch a fish from water while in full flight, their body following a predetermined trajectory that their magnificent wings support and execute their hunting mission.

Two such creatures exist in an area in the Robertson Wine Valley and so much so that a trail is named after them. Located on van Loveren wine estate, the Fish Eagle Hiking Trail is such a trail, making its way in and around the hills and valleys where these birds reside.

From flat dirt roads to technical, rocky single track trails, this moderately easy trail takes in breath-taking views over the valley that makes one feel like flying, flying and swooping like a Fish Eagle.

This post tells a Tale of my run on this trail.

Both en-route and on return from the hills, one crosses the Breede River.

Waypointed information signs make this trail not only adventurous, yet culturally and environmentally relevant.
