Yeah, just confirming the trail does commence at the reception nowadays on the opposite side of road. This change actually eliminates a huge stretch of boulder hopping which one would have found when starting at end of the chalets car park. As you know boulder-hopping can make a hiker's life bit of misery so early into hike.So good move by SANPARKS for implementing this change.
My tip would be allow time to watch the DVD in Otter Room - excellent footage and informative. And of course you can get yourself sorted there as well including a shower if you desired!
Re:Car park - Definitely leave vehicle at Natures Valley(NV) if you can.Enquire at reception as we did who may be able to provide information on options. Otherwise NV Guest House may be only one providing service.
Luckily for our group we drove our vehicles there the day before hike only because there were family members remaining at the chalets for rest of week to return the 'drivers' back to Storms River.You can only do it this way if you have a return driver/vehicle. Good luck and enjoy!
