This is a write up of the section of the Hoerikwaggo Trail between Simonstown and Smitswinkel Bay. It is not included in the official trail as there is no SANParks managed accommodation in the Simonstown area. On the official brochure it is the section between Smitswinkel Bay and Simonstown where transport is required.
Nevertheless it is a stunning section of the hiking trail and the natural link between the two points. It is challenging trek, particularly starting from Smitswinkel Bay, with a steep walk up the ridge.
