Circular Table Mountain hikes
Enjoy the best Table Mountain hikes on a guided walk with Ridgway Ramblers
One of my favourite circular hikes on Table Mountain begins and ends at the car park at the top of Kloof Nek. This route offers you the choice of descending by the cable car or via Platteklip Gorge. If you choose the cableway you can expect a walk of 4 to 5 hours. Hiking down Platteklip will add on around 2 hours.
From the car park at the top of Kllof Nek, cross the road and follow the path that leads around the side of Table Mountain above Camps Bay. Almost immediately you are met with some amazing views. This path follows the original pipeline that was layed down in the early 1900’s in order to transport water from the reservoirs on top of the mountain to Cape Town. The first hour of your hike along this route is relatively flat and serves as a good warm up.
