Table Mountain (Platteklip Gorge) to Constantia Nek
Duration: 8 hours
Difficulty: Moderate, Long
Distance: +/- 19km
In early February we hiked from Constantia Nek to Table Mountain and because of the great experience we are going to do this hike again but in reverse.
The hike begins at Tafelberg road and we will hike up Platteklip Gorge to the upper cable station. We will then take the Echo Valley route to Hely-Hutchinson dam. From there we will pass the other dams on Table Mountain eventually making our way to the Overseers cottage. We will then continue on the Jeep track down Constantia Nek to the parking lot.
This trail exposes the hiker to the many beautiful views of Cape Town such as Hout Bay, Simon’s Town, Camps Bay and the dams of Table Mountain, combined with the natural floral beauty of the Western Cape make this one of the best inner-city hikes.
NB!! This is not a circular trail so we will have to organize a carpool/Uber so that we can return to Table Mountain.
