Treated ourselves to a beautiful walk up the Helderberg Mountain by first enjoying the lovely paths through this beautifully managed reserve. Stunning views and beautiful scenery added to a stunning day out.

This nature reserve is worth a visit, especially in the protea flowering season. The walking lanes have mostly been set out to make sure you can follow pre determined routes up the wonderful Helderberg mountain. There is plenty of bird life and visiting the nature centre before attempting the walk helps you discover what to look for. It can be quite strenuous to get up the mountain but the views are wonderful and some of the way up there are some areas to stop and sit down. Worth a visit and do donate to the cause.

There is also a very nice little coffee shop where you can have light meals,tea/coffee etc
There is a great area for picnicking which is a fantastic place to unwind,play ball games and generally unwind
In the summer season on Sunday evening's they have bands play music to raise funds for the nature reserve

If you are into picnicking with your family or walking and hiking, a visit to the Helderberg Nature Reserve is a must. There is a large lawned area for picnics under beautiful oak trees and a number of walking/hiking trails suited to all levels of experience and fitness. I walk in the Nature Reserve on a weekly basis for the fresh air and once at the gorge, the views of False Bay are spectacular. There is an information centre, a coffee shop and ablutions available although I have not made use of them. I would recommend the reserve for picnicking with kids and hiking specifically.
