The Golden Mole trail on Tygerberg Hill

The Golden Mole trail on Tygerberg Hill
In 2009 I posted a photo taken on top of Tygerberg Hill, along with a map of the route that you can drive to get to the upper parking area.

Kerry-Anne and I decided to walk one of the hiking trails, The Golden Mole trail. Take a look at the route that I recorded using Map May Run.

It costs only R12.50 to enter the nature reserve. Visit The Friends of Tygerberg Hills's website for information about organised hikes. Note that Tygerberg Hill has two entrances, the one I showed in my map, and another in Plattekloof, lower down and on the other side of the hill.

    It used to be free to walk up there until around 2 years ago. I don’t mind paying the R12.50 though, it’s a convenient way for all the people going up there to contribute a little to nature conservation… and for that you get to see some of the nicest views in the world!

    For sure Jonathan – the views are beautiful. I think they use the money to maintain the trails, fences, benches, and pay the conservation officers their salary. So yeah, don’t mind paying either. :)
