Utrip Tips

* The trail head is located at the marked parking area on the Ou Kaapse Weg.

*While safety in Cape Town is generally higher than the rest of South Africa, it still suffers from elevated crime in some areas. As a general rule, it’s recommended to not hike alone in rural areas, or walk alone in city parks around dusk. Hiking in larger groups or with licensed guides are generally a good deterrent. Use common sense and good judgement when enjoying nature, especially in remote areas and around dusk. Private security is common in public spaces such as parks.
