This Saturday we'll do the old Silvermine route that takes us along the Riverwalk, past the dam to the Blackburn Ravine Lookout and across the Panorama path before heading back to the cars.
Gentle uphill warm-up along the Riverwalk. The faster group will head right at the MTB car park to head up the ridge towards Elephants Eye. The Medium group will follow the zig zags up to Blackburn viewpoint before being joined by the Fasts and taking the rocky route up to the Panorama path, or short-cutting along the jeep track. After Noordhoek Peak we connect back with the jeep track for a short distance and then follow the single track down to the dam and back down the Riverwalk or road to the car park.
Terrain and Distance
Mostly single track with a few short sections of jeep track in between.
Distance about 10-13kms, taking about 2h30, depending on short cuts.
Relaxed group to be confirmed on Friday.
Rendezvous and Start Time
Entrance Fee: R31 unless you can produce a Wild Card or MyGreen card.
Meet at the lower Silvermine car park (first on the left after passing through the gate) at 07h00 in time to start running at 07h15. Please remember there is little or no signal there so we won’t get any ‘I’m on my way’ type messages.
Coming from Tokai, it's the first entrance to Silvermine on the right. Turn immediately left into the car park after you've paid at the boom.
What to bring
Water, whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top. ICE details and a silver blanket just in case.
