Falke Full Moon Hikes
The 15th season of the full moon hikes from Delvera and it is not hard to know why these events remain so popular. The spectacular sunset over Table Mountain and a view of the Winelands, makes the hike to the top of Klapmutskop a wonderful adventure!
The 9.75km marked circle route through the vineyards starts at Dirtopia Trail Centre located on Delvera Farm near Stellenbosch. It can take you up to one and half hours to reach the top so get there early to ensure that you have the full experience of hiking through the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy and Yellowwood forest.
Time: Arrival by 16h00, depending on hike date
Venue: Dirtopia Trail Centre, Delvera Farm, R44 between Klapmuts and Stellenbosch
Cost: R100pp & R50 for children under 10yrs (incl permit, marked route & map, optional shuttle)
An optional shuttle service is available, especially for children. The hike then starts with the single track at the Pepper Tree just below Klapmutskop – this will shorten the route to less than 5km in total. This option will take 30-45 minutes to the top.
Bring something warm to wear after dark and a torch, but there is a selection of Energizer torches available at the Trail Centre as well. Wear hiking shoes – you are climbing a mountain. Snacks & cooldrinks for sale at the Trail Centre, but you are welcome to bring you own to enjoy on top of the mountain. A FALKE sock hamper is up for grabs in the lucky draw. All hikers must adhere to the rules of the trail and Dirtopia’s terms and conditions.
