A group of 1st Claremont scouts had the privilege of hiking in Orange Kloof in October this year. A restricted area, accessible only with a permit, Orange Kloof is a secluded valley carpeted with indigenous forest at the back of Table Mountain. The scouts hiked up the valley past the Woodhead and Apostle tunnels, past an impressive waterfall known as Hell’s Gates. The view up to the dam walk is impressive, and the walk up to the historic reservoirs on the lower plateau is steep. Thereafter, the descent via the jeep track was quick and easy.
