Newlands Forest – accessible from the M3 near Rhodes Memorial.

Starting at Newlands Forest Station you walk towards the mountain and take the path to the right where the road forks. The walk is in the shade most of the time due to the large growth of pine trees. This is great when the weather is hot on a typical Cape Town Summer’s day. During the walk there are some great views overlooking Newlands and later some of Bishops Court. You should cross two streams during this walk which are ideal places for a refreshment break or even a picnic. With the mountain as a backdrop and the scenic views all around, there are some great opportunities for photographs. There are many interlinking paths and if you ever did wonder off track then walk, keeping the mountain behind you, and you should reach a path back to the main road.
