Western Cape’s best hikes

We joined forces with Hi-Tec to discover some of the Western Cape’s best hikes, trails and walks


Whether you’re a seasoned hiker looking for some inspiration or an inexperienced, but aspiring trail blazer not sure where to start, we have a walk or hike to suit you. From easy strolls through the forest to more challenging climbs up mountains, there are so many great hiking routes in Cape Town and the surrounding areas.

We’ve spent the last couple of months wearing-in our Hi-Tec boots: we appreciated the unfaltering grip of the sturdy V-Lite Altitude Ultra Luxe Wpi when scrambling up steeper paths, and the comfort afforded by the light  V-lite Total Terrain Lace when going on easier strolls through the forest.

We’ve organised the hikes and walks into categories to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. Please have a look at our hiking safety guide, especially if you’re new to Cape Town, and make a note of the rescue and emergency numbers.
