SATURDAY 15TH DECEMBER 2018 - Three Lookouts and a Peak

Hi Trailers,

Goodness! Where did the year go? Here we are planning the LAST SORTIE OF THE YEAR for Table Mountain Trailers and THE YEAR-END BREAKFAST! 

The route will be our good ol' Three Lookouts and Peak loop at Silvermine, starting and finishing at the dam. Family and friends are most welcome to come and join us at the end for a picnic breakfast and - if the weather is good - a dip in the cool, fresh water. SANParks has come to the party (excuse the pun!) and reduced its tariffs for locals.

Rendezvous and start time 
Meet at Silvermine dam car park - through Gate 1 - ready to start running at 7.30am. The gate opens at 7am and there is usually a long traffic jam. Please arrive at the gate early so that you don't get stuck! Route briefing will be at 7:20am.

Terrain & Distance
This route is made up of jeep track and single track. The main group will cover about 10km in roughly 2 hours.

What to bring 
Water, whistlea space blanket and your ICE information. It is getting warmer these mornings so please don’t forget to put on sunblock before you leave home.  
Also cozzie, towel and a picnic for afterwards. 

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not welcome dogs on its runs.

The route this week is the City Bowl side, doing a variation of the old and new VWS (Volunteer Wildfire Services) short route.

Route details

As the gate for Deer Park only opens at 07:00, we will be meeting at the Kloof Neck* parking area at the bottom of Tafelberg Road. 
*note the attached route map shows the start in Deer Park

We warm up with a lung busting climb up the Kloof Corner steps.  We then get to stretch our legs and take in the full glory of the waking CBD as we run along the front face contour path above the cable station.  We turn down before we get to Platteklip Gorge (unless we miss the turn off in which case we run down Platteklip Gorge) to Tafelberg Road.  We turn right on Tafelberg Road and take in a little tar before we turn down left into Deer Park.  After a little loop above the 3 Towers we head back through Deer Park (be aware the "up" is not done yet) returning to Kloof Neck parking.

See you tomorrow!

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Saturday 27 October 2018 - VLAKKENBERG

Hi Trailers,

 

This week we will be doing our old, familiar Vlakkenberg route – in reverse!

 

Route

 

Instead of the leg-deadening uphill slog behind the Silvermist restaurant, we'll start our run more gently by heading a little further down the main road until we see the pipe track on our left.  We'll head up and along the gently undulating jeep track, all the way along behind the houses until we reach the turn up into Bokkemanskloof.  Here we'll climb the mountainside between the cool vegetation and pop out on the plateau at the top.

 

From here we'll hang a right toward Picnic Rock for the customary group photo. (The Faster group may decided to run on to the Manganese Mines from here.)  Photo snapped, we'll turn on our heels and make our way back to Vlakkenburg Peak itself, before heading down the steps behind Silvermist restaurant, and back to the cars.

 

Rendezvous and start time

 

Meet at Constantia Nek car park ready to start running at 6:45am. Please arrive early for check-in and safety briefing.

 

Terrain & Distance

 

This route is made up of jeep track, single track, and steps. The main group will cover about 11km in 2 to 2,5 hours.

 

What to bring 

 

Water – lots! It's going to be a very hot day. Also a whistlea space blanket and your ICE information . It is getting warmer these mornings so please don't forget to put on sunblock before you leave home.  

 

Please note that TMT unfortunately does not welcome dogs on its runs.
