The walk to the Mushroom Rock starts at the Glen Reenen Rest Camp where you buy a day ticket which enables you to walk or take one of the two drives into the Golden Gate National Park.
The map issued by the Information Office shows this as a circular walk, suggesting a return over the top of the rock, but the map is misleading. This walk is either a ‘there and back’, or a circular walk in which you return on the road which is not recommended.
