Legwear specialist Falke South Africa is teaming up with outdoor adventure experts Dirtopia as the presenting sponsor of the popular full moon hikes held at Delvera Farm, just outside of Stellenbosch.
The 21st of March marks the third last hike in the Full Moon hike series of this season. The 9.75km Dirtopia Vineyard Trail is set in The Simonsberg Conservancy. The circular trail meanders through vineyards, Renosterveld Conservancy and the majestic Yellow Wood Forest to summit Klapmutskop at 523m with panoramic views of the Winelands and Cape Town and, of course, spectacular sunsets and moon rises which take place at 18h56 and 19h37 respectively.
Starting from the Dirtopia Trail Centre, no later than 18h00, it will take approximately 90 minutes to reach the top. Hikers are therefore advised to arrive at the stipulated time of 16h30. Farm vehicles are available to transport children and elderly hikers to the start of the shorter 4,5km route from the famous Pepper Tree.
The cost is R100 for adults and R50 for children under the age of 10 and includes shuttles, permits and a map. Wear comfortable hiking shoes and socks as you will be climbing a mountain. Torches (which are also for sale at Trail Centre) and something warm to wear are recommended for the walk down.
Bookings should be made in advance at the Dirtopia Trail Centre to avoid disappointment as space is limited. Picnics can be booked at least two days before the event dates but you are also welcome to pack your own or enjoy a light meal at the Dirtopia Café on your return to the trail centre. Bookings and enquiries can be done via the website www.dirtopia.co.za or call 021 884 4752.
