Franschhoek Cape Fold Mountain Hike from Cape Town
"Set in a private reserve of great craggy mountains the trail is a straight-forward walk up. It’s steep at first but flattens out soon enough. The fynbos vegetation is both pristine and diverse and mountain antelope baboons ravens and even black eagles are often seen. Approaching the summit the alpine grassland gives way to a rocky peak from which most of the south-west Cape can be seen – even as far as Table Mountain. As further reward it’s an easy-angled walk down via a path that throws up huge views at every turn.The reserve has two shorter trails to accommodate the half-day hiker

The big tree is an outiniqua yellowwood tree that is older than 800 years. It is 33 meters high, and its base is 12 meters wide. You really feel very small when standing close to it.
