TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 26th May 2018 -Cape Point-Buffelsbaai/Kanonkop/Lime-kiln route

Hi All

This Saturday we  head to Cape Point Nature Reserve. Our route takes us from the Buffelsbaai parking area round Kanonkop and back via the coast.

 

Brief Description of Route

From the BuffelsBaai parking, a brief jog up the road and turn right on to the single track that takes us past the Information hut and up to the top of Kanonkop. Here the fast group can take single track to the left for an out and back jog (turning back as they decide - see map) if they want to add more mileage. The medium group will take go over Kanonkop and down towards the old limestone kiln. Cross the road and head to the path along the coast that takes us back to the Buffelsbaai parking.


Rendezvous and Start Time

The park opens at 7am. Please be ready with your Wild Card/My Green Card or R147 (!!) to enter as close to 7am as possible and drive along the road for approximately 8km before turning left at the Buffelsbaai parking sign - park speed restrictions apply. RV in the Buffelsbaai parking - in time to start running at  07h45.


The TMNP My Green Card is available exclusively to residents of Cape Town, costs R147 and provides the holder with 12 free entries a year into any of the Table Mountain National Park's pay points: Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point); Boulders Penguin Colony, Oudekraal and Silvermine, as well as to the braai and picnic areas at Tokai, Newlands and Perdekloof. It offers fantastic value.
    You can use the MyGreen Card for up to 6 people at a time - they must all bring ID books. Each person's entry will be clipped off your card.

Terrain and Distance

A short run with a hill! Good and easy single tracks with a bit of an uphill slog to the top of Kanonkop.  More or less 11 km taking in the region of 1.5 -2.0 hours .  

 

How to get there?

To get to Cape Point Nature Reserve go through Simonstown and up Smitswinkel - entrance on left hand side at top of Smitswinkel. Once through  the payment gate, drive straight along the road for approximately 8km and turn left to Buffels baai (not Buffelsfontein or Bordjiesdrif...).
