The hike begins at the Constantia Nek parking lot. We will first make our way up to the Overseers cottage and then from there to the Table Mountain cable station. Finally, we will make our way down the mountain via Platteklip Gorge. NB!! This is not a circular trail so we will have to organize a carpool so that we can return to Contantia Nek.

Meet up with Ashley at the Constantia Nek parking lot @ 06:30. Hike starts promptly @ 06.45 am. 

There is no entrance fee for the hike so only the R40 cash guest fee for non Meridian Hiking Club members applies (please bring the correct amount).

Numbers will be limited so booking is essential - Ashley (email only).

Bring plenty of at least 2 litres swater, snacks & lunch. Hat, sunblock and a light jacket recommended.
