There’s no signs marking the path on top of Table Mountain for the tranquility cracks, and of course we got lost. That’s how we hike after all.
But the cracks, if you can find them, are quite worth the hike. There are lots of ways to get to the tranquility cracks, and we started on the Camps Bay side of Table Mountain, climbing the pipe track from Theresa Avenue before turning towards Corridor Ravine, and eventually Woody Ravine, up to the top.
Lots of cuts and scrapes later—there’s a significant portion of walking through brush—we located our destination from the other side. As in, we walked past the tranquility cracks to the edge of the mountain, and found them looking back at the Table. Don’t go this way.
The cracks are awesome, and a part of what makes Table Mountain unique. Every time we do a hike, there is always something new to find or explore on this big mountain.
We descended via Corridor Ravine, which has to be one of the best hikes back into the city from Table Mountain. You start looking over Ouderkaal, before rounding a corner with fantastic views of Camps Bay Beach, Lion’s Head, and even the cable car. I highly recommended it.
