FIND YOUR PATH
HOUT BAY CORNER
Less than an hour with a slight incline and a couple of scrambles, you should definitely add a hike up Hout Bay Corner to your list of great quick escapes.
Leave the parking on Victoria Access Rd and head up passing the Ruyteplaats Private Mountain Estate gate on you left. You will walk up through the forest. When you emerge from it keep left at the fork and at the next 3-way fork turn right. You will then take the next path left up towards Hout Bay Corner.
The Apostle Battery, located just north of Hout Bay Corner is one of three in a telemetry network around the Cape Peninsula that was used to protect Cape Town from enemy attack during WWII.
