Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 25 May 2024: East Fort, Hout Bay

Happy Monday Trailers

This Saturday we're in the Republic of Hout Bay.

Route details
Starting from the parking by Velocity Gym, we warm up with a trot up the road to the start of the trail at East Fort. From the shortcut trail we join the jeep track until we get the split to the higher contour path where we may split into groups, those who don't like heights or don't want the steeper climb can continue along the jeep track.  We all end up at Blackburn Ravine and follow the contour path towards Chapmans Peak.  Along the single track we are treated to magnificent views (weather permitting) across the bay, note there is some mild exposure in sections adding to the adventure.
At approximately 7km groups can decide whether to summit Chapmans Peak or head down to Chapmans Peak drive, popping out by the "ticket checker".  From here we have a leg stretch on the tar (approx 4km) back to our cars.

Please remember this a social pack run led by committee with plenty of opportunities for photographs, and its important that we look out for each other. 

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the Velocity Gym parking area at the bottom of Chappies, please come 5 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefing, ready to start at 07:30 (sunrise-ish).

Inline image

Terrain and Distance

A mix of jeep track, single track and tar.  

Distance: +- 12 kms taking about 2h00 - 2h30mins for Main & Relaxed Group, longer if doing Chapmans Peak summit.

Walking group will be confirmed in Fridays mail.

*Please note adjustments to the route may be made whilst running depending on the group and weather conditions. Remember to check Friday's email just in case there are changes.

What to bring  

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top, rain jacket - weather dependent, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs


Have a great week!

FW: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - circular route around that big rock called Devil's Peak

Hi all, tomorrow is ON

 

 

No wind, what there is should be East-ish, lots of mid-height cloud, hopefully it does not obscure the magnificent views from the upper contour, temperature just perfect for a mountain outing.

 

See you there, start 7:30…

 

No news about walkers, perhaps just arrive and see who is keen to walk?

Hi Trailers

 

This coming Saturday we will circle the big rock called Devil's Peak.

 

Rendezvous and start time

We meet for our briefing and sign the register ready to start running at 07:30

RV at Newlands Forest car park near the helicopters

 

 Route

https://www.plotaroute.com/route/944869?units=km

This plot-a-route is 'kind of' what we are doing, there are many variations.

 

We will go from Newlands, lots of up to the right, take the single track left up to the turnstile, Blockhouse, Mowbray (or… here is the first option to go around to Oppels and over the saddle)

After Mowbray, go up one more level to the Knife Edge T junction, turn right and do the upper contour to the mini saddle and perhaps meet the lower contour people.

Then an option is to summit The Devil, then down Newlands Ravine to the cars.

 

Expect about 10 tough km's and probably 3 hours.

 

Terrain and Distance

All sorts, minor exposure on Mowbray, could describe it as completely do-able and fantastic.

 

Walking Group to be confirmed on Friday.

 

What to bring  

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top, rain jacket - weather dependent, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs

TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - Tokai Forest - 4th May 2024

Hi Trailers


This coming Saturday we will be making a return to Tokai Forest

 

Rendezvous and start time

We will meet for our briefing and to sign the register at 06:50 ready to start running at 07:00

RV at bottom of the corner of Orpen Rd and Dennendal Avenue, on the corner with the ribbons. Park in Dennendal Rd next to the forest.


 Route

We'll start by crossing the road and running up the bridal path with Forest Glade Estate on our left. Once on Tokai Road turn right and head up past the braai area which heads up to the Manor House. We turn left at the bridge before the Manor House and follow this jeep track until level 2. The track meanders to the left and then to the right. Keep going up until a tree line is reached and here we head right. Once out of the trees take in the views of the back of Table Mountain, Devils Peak and looking east, of the Cape Flats.


Follow level 2 until the track splits into 3 taking the left fork. Keep going until level 3 is reached where we turn right. Follow level 3 until a larger jeep tack is reached that comes up from the Arboretum. Turn right and right again at the next hair pin bend. Head down taking the first turn to the right that runs parallel to level 3.  (This is to avoid cyclists as much as possible).


Run for about 1km where we will turn left at the intersection that takes us back down past the burnt out house where we turn right. This takes us past the Arboretum and Manor House.


Head on down Tokai Road until the intesection with Zwaanswyk Road where we turn left and then double back on the horse track until the braai area fence is reached. Follow this around keeping to the right. This will take you back to Forest Glade Estate fences where we turn left and back to the cars.

 

Terrain and Distance

Gravel tracks and trails with some good climbing sections.  Distance will be 10-12 km, with the option to do a loop of the Lower Park at the end to add another fast and flat 4km to the distance. 


Walking Group to be confirmed on Friday.

 

What to bring  

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top, rain jacket - weather dependent, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs

Fwd: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - SATURDAY 27TH APRIL - KELINPLAAS DAM WITH TAKE BACK OUR MOUNTAINS

Hi Trailers,

Our run tomorrow is confirmed. There are two main routes planned: one 15km and one 7km.  There will be a run and a hike for the 7km route, and just a run for the 15km one. 
I will share the maps and gpx files on the WhatsApp group, so if you are interested in joining and are not yet on the WA group, please let me know. 0725750914.

To be honest, I don't really know what to expect! There may be a lot of people participating in this community event, so I hope we will be able to maintain some sort of Table Mountain Trailers presence amongst them!  Do wear your TMT t-shirt if you  have one!

See you tomorrow at the meeting point on the Glencairn Expressway at 6.40/6.45 for check in and briefing. I'll send the PIN for the start by WhatsApp too.

Good luck to those members doing Deli to Deli!

See you there!
Lorraine
