Named after the shy, mostly nocturnal, Cape Clawless Otter, participating hikers have to report to the Storms River Park Reception to pay conservation fees, get a trail map and watch a short video, which highlights the trails most recent changes.
There are two huts and a single toilet at each overnight stop along the trail. Each hut contains six beds with mattresses – hikers must provide their own blankets/pillows/sleeping bags etc. Rubbish bins are provided at each of the overnight stops and Field rangers remove the rubbish regularly. The trail starts nearby in the parking area, finishes in Nature’s Valley and there is a compulsory check-out at De Vasselot Rest camp.
