Contour Path Hike highlights:

  • Almost getting run over by mountain bikers because you’re walking up their single track route.
  • Sitting on the canon at the block house and behaving like total tourists.
  • Keeping cool in the shady indigenous forest.
  • Not having sore legs afterwards.

After-hike eating: Kirstenbosch Tea Room for scones and jam. That’s all you’ll have earned after this little saunter. Sorry!
