Up Swartkops

We are meeting where the walk starts off Jan Smuts Drive, Simonstown, just above Seaforth. Coming from Cape Town go through Simonstown, and then from the main road (Queens) just after the first turn off to Seaforth, turn right into Harrington and then left into Churchill Ave- which becomes Jan Smuts at the bend. There is a dirt track going up at this point and you will see the hiking board at the end of the dirt track. We usually park on the tar near the houses and walk up the dirt track. At the start of the walk is where you can see the critically endangered Swartkops Spiderhead Serruria hirsuta. (http://protea.worldonline.co.za/spider2.htm)
