TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 30th July 2022 : Newland's Forest Loop

Hi, Trailers,

This Saturday we return to Newlands forest for a gentle run along the contour path, jeep tracks, and boardwalks.

Rendezvous and Start Time 

Newlands Forest Car Park (Next to Wild Fire Services Base) at 7:20 am ready to start running around 7:30 am.



An anti-clockwise circuit around Newlands: Newlands Forest Car Park – Turnstile Gate – Nursery Ravine – Paradise Ruins – Newlands Forest Car Park

Turn left at the helipad, 100m past the boom turn right, along the single track over the little bridge, up the jeep track to the path that leads you up to the turnstile, at the turnstile turn left onto the contour path, follow the contour path all the way to the BIG rock, the shorter group turns left and heads back to the car park via Paradise Ruins, the longer group climb the stairs and head to Nursery Ravine, 117m past Nursery turn left, head down to the jeep track, turn left onto the jeep track, now for some speed work along the undulating jeep track avoiding the cyclists. At the end of the jeep track make your way back to Newlands Forest car park via Paradise Ruins. 

Terrain and Distance 

The longer route is a circular +/-14km and the shorter route +/-10Km with many variations to choose from.

The terrain is a mixture of a single rocky track and a flowing Jeep track.


What to bring 

Water, whistle, warm, wind, or waterproof top depending on weather plus your space blanket and ICE information.



This is a pack run with regular regroups. We usually split into two or three pace groups. Group leaders will be indicated on the day. Leaders of each group will ensure that no one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no one is left on their own. Remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to ensure the people behind you see which way you are going.   



Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.
