It's never too early to plan your weekend adventure, we are showcasing the Silverhurst Trail this week: You can park across the road from Peddlar’s on the Bend on Spaaschemat River Road or at the other end of the trail on Constantia Nek Road. This is a popular horse-riding trail so if your dogs aren’t comfortable around them maybe choose a different walk.

I had a terrible fall on the Silverhurst trail 2 weeks ago and am desperately trying to find the incredible people who helped me and my dogs and got me in an ambulance. The only name I can remember is Anne who stood behind me supporting me while I waited for the ambulance. Please DM me If you were the couple with the young child, the physio, the Osteopath and the lady who called discovery. I can’t express the gratitude to each od you enough. Your rapid assistance and kindness was so appreciated .

And just like that we can all do our part, pop your glass and cardboard to the recycling centre at The Constantia Village and you will be helping to keep the greenbelts as stunning as they currently are! ... See MoreSee Less

Don't forget to get out and about this weekend, we want to remind you of some of the awesome walks around, we are highlighting the Doordrift Trail today.
This starts in the same place as the Alphen Trail but the walk goes in the other direction, or you can park on Doordrift Road and do the route the other way round.

Dandelion's, Love them or Hate them, they are everywhere, we would like to ask anyone walking in the Greenbelts to please pick the Dandelion heads, and pop them in a bin at the end of your walk. If we de-head them before they seed, we can help try and limit the spread of these little yellow foes, that are smothering our indigenous plants. ... See MoreSee Less
