Join us for a hike to the top of Simonsberg, one of Stellenbosch’s iconic mountains. We park at the gate to Rust en Vrede, walk through the autumn coloured vineyards, then head up onto the ridge that winds its way up, passing below the upper cliffs, and finally up the gulley to the top. The view is spectacular, as we have a 360 vista all around.
- Expect to be back by mid afternoon.
- Bring water and your own snacks or lunch.
- Difficulty: mountain path with a bit of scrambling. Ascent will be in the shade.
