Hi Craig

 

Let me try and make sense of my directions.

 

The easiest way is to start from the top of Reservoir Road. It's the road heading up the mountain at the big circle. Follow the jeep track up the mountain until you reach the first hiking path leading to the right. It takes you up to the ridge above the dams.

 

Otherwise, you can start from the Voelklip neighbourhood at the top of 7th or 8th Avenue and head up the zig-zag path and follow it over the mountain to the ridge above the three dams.
