On the morning of 9 January 2016, a group of 16 of us from the Gantouw Hiking Club hiked from the Newlands Fire Station in the Newlands Forrest on a circular route past Rhodes Memorial that brought us back to the Fire Station.
As can be seen from the route board there is various routes one can take:
After some deliberation, a route was picked and we set off.
The route was about 10km which took us about 3 hours to walk. Â The start was at 96m and the highest point that we reached was 470m. Â The hike is mostly in the shade under the forrest trees. Â It is a very gentle hike. Â Here is the route from RunkeeperÂ that we completed.
