So on Sunday I decided to explore a bit and trail run/ hike a section of the routes on and around Table Mountain. Since I’m an ex Valie and have only done Platteklip gorge previously, I got onto Google and with the help of some locals settled on the Pipetrack option and ascending via Kasteelpoort to the top. I roped in my sister in law and as she is not as fit yet, it ended up being a run/ hike for most of the way.
Long story short, the route was spectacular and littered with other hikers/ runners although it was not as busy as Platteklip, which I really liked. After wolfing down some bananas and taking pictures at the old cable car station, we decided to trek the route from there to the cable car/ Platteklip Gorge and man oh man was it worth it.
The challenging terrain and rolling topography was fantastic and I would definitely return and try and move over it a bit faster. With the awesome weather yesterday the trails were busy which in my mind made it a lot safer. Will definitely do it again.
