We will need to keep an eye on the weather for Saturday as rain is expected, but as you know in Cape Town anything can change. Either way we will hopefully get to see some waterfalls!
From Rhodes Memorial towards King's Block house via Heartbreak Hill and then descending towards Constantia Nek via Ascension Gulley, Woodcutters and along the boardwalks above Newlands Forest back to the start.
Rendezvous and Start Time
RV in the Old Zoo Parking below Rhodes Memorial ready to start at 07:30.
Terrain and Distance
The start is a good warm up to Rhodes Memorial, and leads quite far round towards town on jeep track. Heartbreak Hill will take your breath away as we climb almost up to the King's Block House. Once at the turnstile, it's all downhill. Some single track before we meet up with the boardwalks that lead through the trees, passing the waterfalls (hopefully) and forest. Once past the round table picnic spot, we meander again on jeep track towards Constantia Nek, but turn back towards the start to end the run at just about 11kms.
From the Rhodes Mem parking lot looking at the mountain we take the top left path and go up. The path intersects with the jeep track but we keep going UP to the upper contour path to the turnstile just below the Blockhouse. Then we turn left and follow the contour path taking care not to take any turn offs up to Ravines or down to Newlands forest. When we get to Skeleton Gorge junction we turn around and come back. Simple.
Distance: ±14 kms taking about 2h30 mins.
The Medium group will follow a slightly shorter route at a more modest pace.
Slow Group to be confirmed by Friday.
A whistle, water, a warm/waterproof top, space blanket and ICE tag or card.
Hope to see you on Saturday
