Contour Path - From Kloof Nek
Contour Path - From Kloof Nek
We did this walk on Thursday 27 March 2008 from Kloof Nek around to Rhodes Memorial. We started with a steep walk up to the 500m contour and from then it was a beautiful walk all around Devil's Peak to King's Blockhouse and then down to Rhode's Memorial. See the track on Google Maps at maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&l....

Pipe Track Hike
Pipe Track Hike
The Pipe Track is one of the best-known hikes in Cape Town and probably one of the oldest as it was built in 1887 to bring water down from the reservoirs on top of the mountain down to Kloof Nek. The trail is relatively flat with only the very last bit at Slangolie Ravine climbing quite steeply with some rather narrow parts... but this is worth it to enjoy the great views from the rock overhangs on the other side of the ravine! It is about 1,5 hours hike each way.
