An easy scramble route on Table
The Constantia Corner route up Table Mountain is a mild scramble which takes you to The De Villiers Dam. From there you can either continue your walk further onto the Back Table or return to your car down the concrete road.
Park your car at Constantia Nek and start up the concrete road from the bottom. After you pass the gates which mark the start of the Table Mountain National Park take the first path that leads up the steep slope to your left. This path is steep and quite heavily eroded in places. It rejoins the concrete road after about 15 minutes hard climb. Once you rejoin the road you have the choice to follow the road around a hairpin bend, or go straight ahead. To get to Constantia corner you go straight ahead. The road ends but a small path leads from the end of the road up to your right. Follw this path. After around 200m the path splits. Take the right fork. This path leads you to the base of the cliffs which you follow around so you are now looking over Hout Bay and Orange Kloof. After another 500m look for a cairn on your right. This indicates where you should turn upwards. Here the path is steep and leads onto a shoulder. Follow the clear path to your left, which leads up onto Constantia Corner ridge. The path now leads you North for about 2km to the De Villiers Dam. The route is well marked and includes a couple of easy scrambles. There are 2 distinct milestones on this route. The first is a gap between 2 large rocks, where a large overhang offers a good place for a tea break. (watch out for the blister bush here)
