Many spectacular rock formations of weathered sandstone, like the Wolfbergarch and the Maltese Cross, are found in this mountain range.The Cedarberg is a climbers and hikers paradise. The highest peak, Sneeuberg (2 026 m), is one of the few homes of one of the world's rarest plants, Protea cryophila, the snow protea. Another unusual species found in the Cedarberg is the Clanwilliam cedar, Widdringtonia cedarbergensis, after which the mountain range is named.
