MH is criss-crossed by hundreds of small drainage lines which flow after a few millimeters of rain. The Loots River and Riet River flow for longer than most since they have larger catchment areas. Even in late winter one doesn’t have to dig deeply into the river bed to find water and some of the high rocky streams still flow.
