TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 16 November 2019: Newlands Forest
Good Morning Trailers
This Saturday we head to the forest to attempt our own TMT version of the Baby Beast.
Meet at the Newlands Fire Base parking (not Forries).
We warm up by heading towards Kirstenbosch Gardens and turn up near the boundary. We won't head all the way up to the contour but stick to the lower trails as we head in the direction of the blockhouse. We turn back above hospital bend, taking the lower road above Rhodes Memorial and head back to our cars.
Disclaimer: Route may vary to the actual Beast route as the paths in Newlands Forest move often.
Please remember this a pack run led by committee, and its important that we look out for each other.
