Channel your inner explorer and tackle the great outdoors where magnificent scenery and untouched beauty awaits. And hiking to Grootkop Peak offers just that. Enjoy panoramic views of the mountain and find your zen as you trek through rugged terrains to reach absolute bliss.
This is one of of the most interesting peaks that make up the 12 Apostles (the chain of peaks extending on the west side of Table Mountain). It boasts an elevation of 857m and offers a spectacular sight while you’re on the mountain.
On this journey, you’ll hike up Kasteelspoort, and visit the famous “diving board” rock formation at the old cable car station. The epic adventure will then continue along the top Apostles path.
And for the next stop? Tranquility Cracks of course! This hidden gem features huge cracks in the mountain that’ll leave you ohhhhing and ahhhing as you navigate through it.
The final stop on this picturesque journey will be Grootkop Peak, which comes with a short incline, so you’d have to work a little harder to reach those magnificent views. But once you’re there, it’ll be oh so worth it!
Here you’ll have the opportunity to take a break and grab a bite to eat before making your way back via a circular route down Corridor Ravine.
This is not an easy hike and you aren’t required to be super fit to tackle this journey. However, endurance is the name of the game as you embark on this 12km distance.
The event organisers will do their best to minimise risks and ensure that everyone completes the trek safely, but if you are unsure about your capability, please do enquire.
