Are you itching for a new adventure where you’re surrounded by breathtaking scenery while enjoying fresh air? Now there’s no need to search far and wide when Cape Town has the most amazing hiking trails to welcome all nature lovers.
Here are four popular hiking trails that are suitable for children and beginners too:
The Pipe Track
Even though the Pipe Track from Kloof Nek can become congested, we can definitely see why! This popular trail is commonly used on the weekends for hiking, walking and running, and boasts the most beautiful views over Camps Bay, Lion’s Head and the Atlantic Ocean.
Table Mountain’s unique fynbos is certainly a sight to behold as you navigate through a single rock path that later joins onto a jeep track. Take time to enjoy the views along the way as you pass through stunning ravines of the western slopes. Even though your journey may be rocky in some areas, it certainly isn’t steep with only a few slight hills which makes it a perfect outing for children.
As one of Table Mountain’s oldest hiking routes, it’s still enjoyed by locals who love a relaxed stroll while catching a magnificent glimpse of the 12 Apostles mountain range.
