Event header: January Birthdays Cable-car and mountaintop hike
Event date: Saturday, 28 January 2023
Event description:

The cable car company offers all SA Citizens a free return trip during their birthday month.

Bring along your ID document and meet at the ticket office at 08h00. Take the first cable car up. We will start hiking at 08h30. I must still determine the route we will walk, but it will be a beginner's level hike.

Most of the way trail to Maclears Beacon is flat. The first part is paved then it involves stepping from flat stone to flat stone, crossing wooden boardwalks over marshes and walking along some pebbly areas. 

At one section a little easy scrambling is required, a chain bolted to rocks helps you get up and down. 

After the hike we will take the cable car down. 

R40 guest fee applies to non Meridian Hiking Club attendees. 

Rain, mist, and high winds postpone the hike to Sunday 29th at the same time.
