I really needed this. Thanks to my cousin, DeVilliers, I got my backside out on a trail!
First we just took a tour around the reserve and stopped where the shops and restaurant are located. The view from there is spectacular! When you look up the west coast of False Bay, it feels like you are the first person on earth to have this view.
We drove around for a while trying to find a the right hiking trail. It was very windy, so we wanted something a little protected.
This one was marked well and looked like it wasn’t too far to the top. Ha. The ridges just kept coming. It was terrain like I had never seen before. Wind and rain battered.
Dragon or duck?
We worked our way to the top. That’s Cape Hangklip in the distant background! All the way on the other side of False Bay.
Down was easy and fast. Chilly wind in our faces felt great!
If you look really closely, you can see a white car and my blue Festiva way, way down there.
I’ll get back here as soon as I can. I feel safe here in the park. I have needed a place like this. Somewhere to be alone in the wild. Everything in me recharges in that environment.
If you come here, there is a R140 entry fee for adults. No pentioners discount!
