The park derives its name from the brilliant shades of gold cast by the sun on the park's sandstone cliffs, especially the imposing Brandwag rock. Generaalskop, the highest point reveals a breathtaking tapestry of red, yellow and purple hues as its warm shades merge with the cool mountain shadows during the afternoon.
