Woody Ravine to Woodhead Dam – 27 Dec (Intermediate)


Woody Ravine, on the Twelve Apostles side of Table Mountain, is a route less traveled and offers some shaded respite from the summer sun. Expect incredible rock faces, some scrambling over rock, using the roots of trees to maneuver and incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean as you make your way up the mountain through an ancient indigenous forest.


With rocks dated over 600 million years old and Table Mountain named as one of the new seven wonders of the world, this challenging hike has everything from steep scrambles, beautiful indigenous Fynbos and a visit to two of the five reservoirs situated on the back table.


While not too technical, the hike does have some scrambling and hoisting up rocks, but the views are worth the effort as the Atlantic Ocean is beautifully framed by majestic walls of the buttresses on either side. Once at the top, we’ll take a break at Woodhead Dam and appreciate the historical engineering genius of times long passed. We’ll descend the mountain via Kasteelspoort after a quick stop at the diving board.
