rock at the Kasteelspoort turn of

Kas­teel­spoort is one of the more pop­u­lar routes up the west­ern flank of Table Moun­tain. Park­ing is usu­ally not a prob­lem if you get there early enough. Just after 07H00 in sum­mer and you should have no problem.

We like to park on Tafel­berg Rd, just of Kloofnek. (see map) From here it is about an hours walk on the pipe track (so called after the exposed pipe at places) to the turnoff to your left up Kas­teel­spoort. If you do not have to much time on your hands, and you would like to cut out the walk on the pipe track, you also have the option of park­ing in Theresa Rd, above Camps Bay. (see G.P.S. co-​ordinates)

Some­thing that one should bear in mind is that once you have reached the top of Kas­teel­spoort, is that you are now only on the
back table of Table Moun­tain. From here it is another +- 300m in alti­tude to reach the upper cable station,if you were plan­ning on going this route.

On this route you have the per­fect oppor­tu­nity to take a leisurely stroll around the dams and to visit the museum that houses some of the old equip­ment used in con­struct­ing and main­tain­ing the dam.

If you are lucky enough you might be able to spot one of the disas that grow in the moist kloof’s of the moun­tain. They usu­ally flower between Decem­ber and March. We were for­tu­nate enough to see four Disas on our last trip up Kasteelspoort.

As always the views are mind blow­ing, spe­cially the sun­sets, so be sure not to for­get your camera.
