Drive to the well known Sparkling Waters hotel. After passing the hotel you go onto a dirt road. About 1 km further you will find Ronnie Bartlett's farm on the right. There is a signpost that says "Kranskloof Hiking Trail". You can park here (sign the book and pay R40 parking fee). Walk back towards the hotel and after a short while you will see a signpost on the right next to a small pedestrian gate. Go through this and follow the trail down.
The trail goes through the lower campsite and then crosses a stream just below the campsite. From here the trail goes uphill about parallel to Grootkloof and then descends into the kloof via Grootkloof Gully.
