What you'll do

Starting at the Vine in Hout bay (https://www.thevineonline.co.za) we will begin our experience with an overview from Innes on the deck, a coffee or smoothie before we turn left and start our run up the Iconic Chapmans Peak drive. After 900 metres we turn left onto the start of the trail at East Fort (http://www.theheritageportal.co.za/thread/east-fort-hout-bay) and head up the first climb to the top of the historic Manganese Mines. Turning to admire the stunning views across Hout Bay, we then pick up a contour path which winds it way around the mountain towards the mighty Blackburn ravine. We are now heading south and Chapmans Peak is in front of us before we join the intersection with Blackburn Ravine and head down through lush forest to the Blackburn Weir. The bottom contour path opens up into a wide jeep track and allows us to move fast as we speed along to East Fort. Dropping down from here to tag and admire the East fort Cannons, we then finally head down the rd and back to the Vine for after run refreshment after a satisfying 10k of the best that Hout Bay has to offer.
