Great circular walk through Newlands Forest around the back of Devil's Peak.

Great route. We (moderately fit 40+) did it in about 4 hours. Ravine is steep and some bits of the walk are quite technical but also lovely and shaded. Stunning views over Cape Town. We missed a few turns here and there, but there were usually other paths to follow fairly close by. Route isn’t too busy, which was nice.
