Facebook Feedback Fridays: Your favourite hiking trail
Not sure if it’s only in Cape Town, but this time of the year there’s a certain whimsical feeling in the air that makes us want to stay outside all day. It’s the last few months of the year; the warmer days have finally arrived and summer is officially approaching. This week, we asked our Facebook fans to point out their favourite hiking trails in Cape Town. Our very first comment from Carmen Chadband inspired us to get on our hiking boots right away and head to the Krom Rivier where she quotes:
"The beauty of this hike in the Limietberg Nature Reserve is that it’s rewarding from the very start. The path follows the river up the valley and when it veers up onto the hill you have amazing views of the surrounding mountain peaks. Once you turn up into the Kloof you’ll walk through magical indigenous riverine forest. There are swimming spots dotted along the way with the last two pools being well worth the extra effort."
That may just be our plans for the weekend. Thank you, Carmen.
Some of our favourite suggestions were:
Thulani Landelo Cape point
Mandy Smith Skeleton Gorge
Rob Laf Lions Head, Chapman Peak and little Lions Head
Charles Brewer DHL Newlands stadium!!
Cindy Bolder Anywhere..anywhere in cptwn...
Vincent Damiano Twelve apostle mountains
