Description

This trail is a great way to reach the top of Table Mountain as it remains shaded in the summer. Note that there are ladders to climb and some scrambling in the ravine/gorge over large rocks and slippery tree roots that make this trail a bit more technical and challenging.

Flora & Fauna

I have spotted a Himalayan Tahr in the Gorge late one evening.
