TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Table Mountain Trailers: Next Sortie 13th July, Silvermine Reserve and Sunbird Centre


Hi Trailers


Our next run will be as follows:


13 July 2019 : Silvermine and the Sunbird Centre

We haven't run this route in a while but we will basically do the same route, but this time we will start from the parking in Silvermine (Gate 2), cross the road and run the Old Wagon Route first and then up the Silvermine valley via the Sunbird Centre

Run Leader/Manager

Julian and Gae Tompkins

Rendezvous and Start Time
RV at the Silvermine Gate 2 Parking area.  The gate only opens at 8 am, so we can try and start at 8.15 am.  If you need to wait for the gate to open, please make sure you are well off the road and visible to other cars

How to get there?  Drive up Ou Kaapse Weg from the Constantia Valley side, over the top and past the entrance to Silvermine North West (dam) on your right and look out for the next entrance to Silvermine East on your left hand side.  This is where we will meet.  As far as I know there isn't an entrance fee as such, but you must please bring money for parking – probably about R10.  Maybe  bring your Wildcard or extra money in case their policy has changed

Terrain and Distance.   Some undulating bush trails and gravel tracks via the Old Wagon Road.  Then a good downhill jog to the Sunbird centre then a gradually steeping run up the valley.  The plan is to  go to the amphitheatre before returning to our cars

Distance will be approx. 14 km and  in the region of 2hrs 30 mins   

Our runs are pack runs and will may split into 2 or 3 pace groups on the day.  Relaxed group to be confirmed on Friday

What to bring  

Water (essential), whistle, warm, wind or waterproof top depending on weather 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs
