Hiking up Table Mountain through Dark Gorge
Dark Gorge doesn’t actually take you all the way up onto the highest point of Table Mountain. It takes you up the Eastern side of the saddle that lies between Devils Peak and Table Mountain so you can use it as a starter for either peak.
The route starts in Newlands Forest and quickly rises to the contour path. From here the gorge climbs steeply through wonderful indigenous forest. As this is not a well worn path the route is marked by cairns and you do have to find your way past some areas of thicker vegetation and rocks.
