“A mostly shaded climb through a beautiful ravine to reach the top of Table Mountain.”— Warren Douglas
Nursery Ravine is named for the small valley at the top that was used as a nursery for exotic trees by Forrester J Lister in 1892.
Start from the Contour Path above Kirstenbosch. There is a clear signpost indicating the start of Nursery Ravine. Most of the route is dirt singletrack with log steps. At the very top is a short series of wooden steps.
