Where is your MicroAdventure located? 
Mnweni



How long is the MicroAdventure in total, out and back? 
30km

Give the people a short description of your Micro-Adventure.
We caught a shuttle to the start of the trail about 5ks from the Mnweni cultural centre. Our "mission" was to hike up Rockeries pass and stay in Ledges cave at the top of the escarpment. The Mnweni marathon was the next day so we hoped to catch top runners coming up Mnweni pass and cheer them on. We headed back down rockeries after a quick breakie and numerous cups of tea/coffee
