These Cork Oak Trees were planted by Simon van der Stel in the 1800’s and are now protected. It is a lovely short walk of about 3km or so from the Southern Cross Drive entrance to the forest down to the main parking on the right.

On Saturday I did a very interesting run – there and back again through the Huguenot service tunnel. Of a 20km run, just less than half was in the pitch black tunnel.
We ran on tar, dirt roads, single-track, drainage canals, and of course through the tunnel.
It was a most excellent adventure!
