My friend E. and I have visited many (easy) hiking trails in and around Cape Town. Here are some that I enjoyed most: the Glen (pictured), Newlands Forest, Llandudno Beach, and the Constantia Greenbelt. The worst: Elsieskraal River. E. graciously called the latter a "blink idee" (a "glittering idea", for which I have to assume sole responsibility). It was scorched in the sun, with a storm ripping through it. It can be nice in winter.
