Steep and forested and not as popular as some of the other nearby ascents of Table Mountain and Devil's Peak.

Description

Newlands starts on the boardwalks of the Contour Path and rises quickly on an obvious, switchbacked trail. Once you clear the trees, you have a fantastic view. Connections to the many other trails in the saddle between Devil's Peak and Table Mountain.
