Happy Monday Trailers

This Saturday we're exploring from Cecilia Forest.

Route details
Starting from the Cecilia Forest parking we'll warm up through the cork forest parallel to the road until just above Southern Cross drive.  We won't go as far as the Contstantia Neck jeep track boom but rather stay on the track as it loops back through the forest. Keeping left we'll stick to the jeep track running above the SANParks compound until the "big tree" intersection where we can decide whether to go up via Cecilia Waterfall or continue on the contour path towards Kirstenbosch until we see the Cecilia Ravine sign where we turn left up a steep set of steps.
The Cecilia Ridge path starts near the highest point on the path and after some fun easy scrambling and pauses to admire the spectacular view (weather permitting) we'll pop out near the Overseers Cottage.  From here we head back down on the Constantia Neck Jeep Track (the long group can opt for an extension to the dams).
At the first look-out point we'll leave the jeep track and follow the single track down through the trees across the trail path (don't turn left back to Cecilia waterfall) but continue on the single track through the trees until we join back up on the jeep track that will take us down to our cars. 
Please bring your sense of adventure as the route may change depending on damage caused by the weather this week as well as weather conditions on the day. 
This is a social pack run led by committee with plenty of opportunities for photographs, and its important that we look out for each other!

Hi Trailers.

This week we'll follow the route(s) for the Gone4Good Challenge.  There are 2 options: 
  • Gone4Good Long - 18.8kms 1123m elevation
  • Gone4Good Lite - 12.5 kms 830m elevation
Both routes start at Sentinel Ocean Alliance at Hout Bay Beach parking, and climb up via East Fort to the Manganese Mines. The long route then continues up to the Constantiaberg mast, before heading to Vlakkenberg and down via Price Drive to the finish at Gone. Outdoor Supply Co. in Constantia, Cape Town.  The Lite route skips the mast and heads straight to Vlakkenberg Peak from the end of Alfie's Path and Breakfast Rock.

There are no costs involved, but you are encouraged to make a donation to the fundraiser. The goal this year this to raise funds for Sentinel Ocean Alliance and The Friends of Table Mountain.
