Silvermine hike


Carine, Sibylle and I went on a fantastic hike yesterday to the Silvermine National Park just outside of Cape Town. I have often driven past and even visited the reservoir inside the park but this was the first time I had gone on one of the trails.

If you know the area but haven't really thought about it, like me, then you don't realise that a short hike up the west side of Silvermine takes you to viewpoints overlooking Noordhoek, Chapman's Peak and Hout Bay. It is quite literally a breathtaking view. You are high up above the usual roads and homes, a view from one side to the other of the most beautiful kind.

If you have the time then get to Silvermine and do the easy 3 hour hike up to the East Fort or Chapman's Peak points. You won't regret it.
