Tom tells us about the Devil’s Peak hike

We started at Newlands Forest on a Sunday in July. We walked up to the Contour path and then headed up Newlands Ravine. There were loads of steps. Once at the top we had a break at Pulpit Rock and David told us some scary stories about the two ravines on either side of Pulpit Rock – one is called Dark Gorge and one is called Dark Gully and he warned us about hiking there. Then we walked across the saddle and up Devil’s Peak to a beacon and then to another beacon where we had lunch with a spectacular 360 degree view. Luke Neville led the hike. The hike was kind of easy and there were lots of flowers and fynbos on the mountain and Jasper the dog could go for longer.
