New 20km Route


After an absence of a number of years, the beautiful West Coast suburb of Milnerton becomes a focal point for the start of the 20km walk. The West Coast has been overlooked for the last few years because of the development to the roads for the My City project which is now complete.

The walk, one of the ten that make up the Discovery Cape Town Big Walk, will prove popular as it boasts spectacular views of Table Mountain, the city bowl, the harbour, the city centre and Table Bay.

The walk starts opposite Woodbridge Island and follows a course along Otto du Plessis, into Marine Road at PaardenIsland on the BRT into town and continues on the same route as the 10km walk to the finish at the St George’s Grammar School.

The full course is listed below.
