On the eastern side of the mountain, hike up along a river/riverbed (seasonal) in indigenous forest only found in a few select places on the mountain. It is a beautiful, but steep hike with ladders in places. Once out the gorge it is a much easier walk along Smuts track to Maclear's Beacon (with a short, steep section right before the beacon). We then follow the trail on the front of the Table Top all the way across to the Cable Car to descend. This trip starts in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and we'll take a short walk around the Gardens before heading up the mountain.
Approx 5 hours
If short on time, we head up Skeleton Gorge and descend down Nursery Ravine, the next gorge over staying on the eastern side of the mountain, ending in Kirstenbosch Gardens
Approx 3 hours
