Detailed Description of this trip:
There are hiking options in the Cape Town area, where you can hike Table Mountain. Rich in cultural and natural wonders this trail links the complex social history of Cape Town with the spectacular diversity of the peninsula's Cape Floral Kingdom and scenery.
This Trip is Recommended for:
Day 1 - Cape Town
7.4 km, approximately 5 hours with stops.
Short but arguably the most beautiful trail on Table Mountain, the trail begins at Constantia Nek Circle and from there continues up Disa Gorge through indigenous afromontane forest. The trail emerges from the forest and winds its way through the fynbos landscape to the People’s Trail Hut on the Back Table. (Hike: 7.5 km, approximately 5 hours.)
Day 2 - Cape Town
The morning is spent exploring the “back table” including the area around the historic water works museum that showcases the equipment used to construct the dams and reservoirs that scatter the mountain.
Later that day the trail descends via Platteklip Gorge to the lower cable way station.
Bed & Breakfast
The People’s Trail Hut is situated on the back of Table Mountain with spectacular views of the Woodhead Dam and the southern Atlantic Coastline. Sleeping facilities: The hut has dormitory style accommodation for 20 people. Guides/ Teachers have separate sleeping accommodation.
The Kitchen: There is a fully furnished kitchen with gas stoves and cooking equipment as well as cutlery and crockery for 20 people. There is one tap that yields treated drinking water.

Bathrooms: There are three bathrooms with combination solar/gas heating ensuring that everyone will have a hot shower.
