Silvermine Cloud Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 4A
Distance: 10km
Extremeness: Technical single track and clouds
Location: Silver Mine, Muizenberg, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck & me

Today we went for an extreme jog in the Silver Mine Nature Reserve for the first time. The idea was to take a route that would give us stunning views towards Chapman's Peak and False Bay - unfortunately we jogged in a cloud! We started on the Elephant's Eye Cave route and took a single track marked "HT" (I think it means hiking trail). We followed an awesome single track for about 3km and completely lost our direction given the lack of visibility. We then linked up with the Noordhoek Trail jeep track and went uphill again. Luckily we had our cell phones with us - otherwise we might have ended up in Tokia Forest. We jogged past many awesome-looking single tracks. We will most definitely be back for more...
