 Route details
We start at the Olifantsbos parking and run along the beach visiting the various wrecks before turning inland on single track up a gentle rise taking us through to Sirkelsvlei. Here there is an option to run out to the north and back again to get more distance if required or we turn west along the vlei and make our way back to the cars
Always beautiful running past the wrecks and then up to the vlei where we normally see bontebok, ostriches and turtles.
Cape Point weather is always different so please come prepared for everything.
