Not as picturesque as Skeleton gorge. Simple - part of the trail goes along the road. Don’t miss first lake at the top - worth swimming in it to the dam at the opposite side of the reservoir

Very straightforward hike that gets you up Table Mountain simply and efficiently on a clearly marked path. Great views of course to the sea plus really interesting rock formations at the top plus some small water features such as the dams.

Take advantage of the side trails to customise this walk, especially if you return to do it again.

Great area for all types of hiking and trail walking. There are a number of side paths for you to make your own route. Lot's of trees and there are a few small streams to help cool down. Super family and pet friendly.

one of my favourites. you can make this into an in and out track or into a loop by switching onto one of the other trails. some parts shaded with incredible vistas and some other parts in the sun. I nice easy trail depending again on how you do it. recently had a fall on a mother mountain and this trail was the perfect one to get back on the proverbial horse so to speak. we wen up the jeep track and climbed a little against the side by the houses and then merged with an blue mountain back track until we hit the jeep track again.
