Day 9: Skeleton Gorge Hike
Situated above Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Skeleton Gorge is a relatively hard hike up to Table Mountain. In some places there are ladders and so hikers need to be comfortable with climbing fixed wooden ladders. Walking through the Botanical Gardens is, in itself, a wonderful experience and worthy of a full day. Our Guide will plan your hike to take in a large part of the Botanical Gardens or alternatively, the hike can ascend Skeleton Gorge and either return to Kirstenbosch via another route or follow Smut’s trail to Maclear’s Beacon and then down via the Cable Car or Platteklip Gorge.
The hike up the Gorge, along Smut’s track and down Table Mountain is a full day and a good level of fitness is required. Should hikers wish to cover all the trails they can be managed as separate day walks to account for all levels of fitness.
