This hike starts in Kirstenbosch Gardens and is in shade through the forest. There are a few sections of rockfall and ladders are provided to help climbers were needed.

Once at the top (near the dam), you will need to keep left past the dam to the top of Nursery Ravine. The descent of Nursery Ravine (which is steeper than the ascent) will bring one back to the contour path and one can then walk back to the Gardens.

If you are looking for a longer walk, you can carry on to the top of Skeleton Gorge (Breakfast Rock marks the top of the gorge) and then make your way along the Eastern flank to Maclear’s Beacon which is the highest point.

The views of the entire Table Mountain chain all the way to Cape Point are superb! From here you can walk across the Central Table and an about 60 minutes later you should arrive at the cable car station and you can ride back down.

Please Note:
Please remember the mountain can be moody and the weather can turn quickly. You should always carry a light but warm jacket with you, as well as plenty of water and sunblock.
