TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 19 October 2019: Vlakkenberg

Good Morning Trailers

This Saturday we meet at Constantia Neck to explore the Vlakkenberg.

Route details

Meet at the Constantia Neck parking.

Heading a short distance down the tar road towards Hout Bay you will see a green gate on the left signposted for Vlakkenberg, once through we start with an up (surprise!). Over the neck we take a sho't left from the trail to admire the vistas across the Constantia vineyards and False Bay. Returning back to the trail we continue our undulation (running passed Bokkemanskloof) until we get to tar road leading to the Constantia mast.  
A little way up the tar there's a contour path to the right which will lead us to another stunning viewpoint, this time across Hout Bay. We then retrace our steps back to Bokkemanskloof where we turn down (yay!), continuing to join the gravel road on the right with a leg stretch back to Constantia Neck.

Please remember this a pack run led by committee, and its important that we look out for each other.
