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.
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...).

To this end neither the Club nor the organisers personally can be held liable for any claims relating to inter alia, injuries, disabilities and death. Further any minor child participating in any trail running activity will be deemed to be doing so with the consent of his or her guardian.
