        The Directions

        Follow Camp Road (to the right of Muizenberg Park) until you reach a set of steps, which you’ll need to follow up to Boyes Drive. Once you get to Boyes Drive, turn left and pretty immediately on your right you’ll see a trailhead carved out of the wall.
         
        There should be a Table Mountain National Park sign here for Peck’s Valley. Take the immediate right and follow the trail up in between St James’s Peak and Muizenberg Peak. There may be a few deviations, but as long as you stick to the path heading up between the two mountains, you will be fine (if memory serves you’ll take another right and then a left, but it’s quite obvious). It should take no more than 40 minutes to reach the plateaux.
         
        Shortly after reaching the top you’ll come to a four-way junction. There will be a small sign on the floor indicating that the right turn will take you to the , but you’ll want to continue straight ahead towards Exit Gate 2. You’ll want to stick on this path until you take a left skirting the large fenced off area. You’ll then want to take a right at the first T-junction followed by another right at the T-junction after that. Both turnings should be signposted for either Exit Gate 2 or the Steenberg Peak (or both). You can’t really go wrong as long as you cross over the range.
         
        Once at the top of Steenberg Peak, you should be able to see a long road in the distance leading straight into the . That’s where you’re headed. Continue over and down Steenberg Peak towards the main road (M64). Once you reach the road, you’ll have to walk along it for about 10 minutes. Unfortunately, the road is quite busy and fast, so do be careful, and veer left across the scrub as soon as you can to reach the entrance gate. All in all, it should have taken you a little under 2 hours to get this far.
         
        Once you’ve paid your ticket, take the immediate left and then after about 5 minutes a right. You’ll know you’ve taken the correct turning if you come across a sign for the Silvermine River Walk. From here it’s a straightforward and pretty casual hour’s walk to the . To return to , you could either go the full slog and walk back the way you came, or an Uber from the gate shouldn’t cost you more than ZAR90.
