FEEDBACK: Saturday 18 July 2015, Constantia Corner and Nursery Ravine Loop

A surprisingly clear day for a run after all the rain in the preceding days.  Just a small group of runners, with two new runners in the Main group.  The Main group went with the original plan up the Hoerikwagga trail to Eagle's nest corner and then the trail past Belle Ombre to the De Villiers Dam.  From here, they went along Smuts Track to the top of Nursery Ravine, and descended into Kirstenbosh before returning along the trail above the dam and following the tracks through Cecelia forest.

The Recovery group opted to follow a more undulating route, that not only cut out the exposed trail, but also managed to stay below the clouds on the upper parts of the mountain.  Their route stayed along the upper contour path to Skeleton gorge, where we decided to turn back because of the fast flowing river (pictured below).  We returned via the lower contour path through Cecelia forest (pictures below).
