Overview

"Offering the most detailed coverage yet of the many paths that crisscross the Cape Peninsula, this book describes 69 tracks that traverse Table Mountain, the rocky headlands of Cape Point, and the ridges, beaches, forests and coastal villages that make up Cape Town’s hiking paradise. Best of all, there’s a chapter presenting 33 of the Mother City’s most convivial watering holes – rated according to atmosphere, value, quality of food and views – where weary hikers can wet their whistles after having worked up a sweat. Each trail entry features a concise route summary, contour map and GPS coordinates for the start and end points, as well as vital information outlining distance, duration, difficulty, exposure and gradient. Safety advice and tips on hiking gear and what to pack are also included. Colour photographs and fact panels on local flora, fauna, geology and history add lively interest. This practical guide, written by veteran hiker Tony Burton, is a must-have for novice and experienced hikers, whether tipplers or teetotallers. An avid and experienced hiker, and leader for The Trails Club of South Africa for the last 15 years, Tony Burton has hiked nearly every weekend for the past 30 years, completing well over 1 000 different hikes and leading at least 250 excursions. He resides in Cape Town."
