Half Day Silvermine Nature Reserve
Home > Day trips >Peninsula hikes > Half day Silvermine Nature Reserve
The reserve boasts a network of easy trails that offer rewarding views over the peninsula, False Bay and Table Mountain. Along the way, hikers encounters pristine mountain flora, unique sandstone caves and ephemeral rivers of cool mountain water. This is a hiker’s playground and we encourage it as an essential stop on any exploration of the Peninsula.
The trails are quiet and easy to walk, reaching height impressively quickly with views in all directions. While there are regular routes that we know work well for half day hikes, we are able to tailor all hikes to include features and experiences that guests would enjoy.
