Description

Detailed Route Description
Start at the main entrance gate to Suikerbossie Restaurant and run towards Llandudno Ravine (Hout Bay Trail Challenge leg 2 route).
Head up Llandudno Ravine where the first Check Point will be a quarter of the way up the climb. Once on top of the mountain, follow the trail towards Kasteelpoort and do not take any of the turn offs, including the turn off to the WoodHead Reservoir.
Once you reach the beacon at the top of Kasteelpoort, continue straight through the Valley of the Red Gods and towards Platteklip Gorge.
Do not take the turn down to Kasteelpoort.
You'll pop out at the top of Platteklip Gorge where Check Point two is. Head down Platteklip Gorge but DO NOT run all the way down to Tafelberg Road.
You must take the Upper Table Mountain Contour path towards Kloof Nek corner (you'll run under the Cable Car) and turn down right on the trail once you get to the Kloof Nek corner beacon.
The third and final Check Point is on the Kloof Nek corner trail heading down towards Tafelberg Road.
Follow this trail down to Tafelberg Road. Once you hit the road, turn left down to the SANParks information centre in the parking-lot where the Table Mountain Trail Challenge starts.
Touch the far lefthand side (if you are facing towards the city centre) of the information hut and you have finished.
