Skeleton Gorge to Ash Valley – 7 May (Intermediate)

(4 customer reviews)


A longer, more strenuous hike will make for an adventurous day filled with beautiful scenery as you explore a majestic waterfall and dams on Table Mountain.


This will be a circular route that starts out hiking through the forest, followed by a pit stop at Skeleton Gorge Waterfall before ascending the trail to the top.


Hiking up Skeleton Gorge, being surrounded by trees, mossy rocks and the sound of the stream alongside is incredible.


When reaching the top we will pass some of the dams, starting at the Hely Hutchinson Reservoir which opens up to a “beach-like” appearance and is truly a magnificent sight to behold.


Our way back will follow the “less travelled” and peaceful, Ash Valley route which offers amazing views of the Southern Suburbs all the way to Muizenberg.


Keep in mind that this is by no means an easy hike, safety is our main priority and we will do our best to minimize risks to ensure everyone completes the event safely. If you are unsure about your capability, please do enquire rather than assume.

    We went for this hike on 24 October and it was spectacular.. Idrees is a phenomenal guide – I had some trouble with climbing the ladders and navigating up the ravine, and he helped me to stay calm and assisted me through-out. The views are breath taking and seeing how the terrain goes from forest to beach to mountain is like being in a fairy tale. Really enjoyable – great coffee and company 😉 Thanks Trailfit – hope to see you again soon

    This hike was absolutely beautiful! Idrees was a great guide. He went according to our pace, he was very informative and it was lovely to have a guide who knew what we needed to do so that we could enjoy the hike.
    It was our second hike with Trailfit SA and we were very happy with their service and highly recommend them.
