Next walk: Saturday 20 August 2016

Famed cartographer and writer Peter Slingsby says Betty’s Bay’s Denys Heesom Trail ‘knocks [the Hermanus Cliff Path] sideways for wilderness and wildlife’. (See Peter Slingsby’s book, Walks with a Fat Dog, page 130.)

It may be in our back yard, but have you done it all in one go? The trail starts at Jock’s Bay and end four kilometres later at Stony Point. On the way we’ll see the Milkwoods at Dawid’s Kraal, traverse the length of main Beach, get among the Cape seashore vegetation early spring flower display and finish up among the penguins. Tea or coffee at the ‘On the Edge’ restaurant is a strong possibility.

Meet and park in the parking area of Harold Porter National Botanical Garden at 09h00. We’ll have cars at Stony Point to transport you back to Harold Porter NBG.
