Devils Peak Trail Rehabilitation
As many of our Table Mountain users know, Devils Peak is a spectacular part of TMNP with incredible views of the city and the mountain. While it's hiking trails may not be as popular as Platteklip Gorge and Lions Head, they are used regularly by mountain users and the trails are in a neglected state due to the lack of maintenance over a number of years. At our meeting with the SANParks CEO in September 2020, it was agreed that SANParks would arrange for community involvement with the rehabilitation of the Devils Peak path. Unfortunately only the path up to the saddle has undergone maintenance and the path from saddle to the peak is in dire need of rehabilitation. As a result, Friends of Table Mountain has taken the initiative to rehabilitate this section of the trail as a community project with the assistance of the Honorary Rangers. In addition, the Batrun trail race organisers and Table Mountain Bikers have also volunteered to help.
The project covers the following:
- Procurement of materials
- 2 volunteer days to transport the materials to the site and complete some basic rehabilitation
- 2 weeks of work for a professional trail building team.
Our budget for this project is R50,000 and we are super stoked to have the following committed so far:
- 1 week of work by a professional trail building team from Table Mountain Bikers
- All materials donated by Maarten Turkstra at Axess.
We need to raise the balance of the money through donations from all the good people who love using our beautiful mountain. So, if you are a regular TMNP user and want to contribute to this good cause, please contribute on this Quicket page.
If you are feeling particularly generous or are a corporate sponsor and wish to donate R1000 or more and need a SARS tax certificate, then please contact our partners the Honorary Rangers (registered PBO) at [email protected]
Our goal is to complete the work in mid March 2022 and if you wish to partake in in any of the volunteer days then please keep an eye on the FOTM facebook page.
