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.


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.

See you there
