Cape Town - This Sunday a group of hikers will take to Steenberg Peak to raise awareness over criminal activities at the Table Mountain National Park.
The group, Take Back Our Mountains, has been hosting hikes since 2018 to reclaim areas that have been affected by crime.
The group began in response to an attack in January last year, when nine hikers were attacked and stabbed on the Kalk Bay trail near Silvermine.
This violent attack spurred fed-up residents to demand increased security and surveillance in the national park.
Take Back Our Mountains provides a safe place for people who are interested in hiking, but who may be reluctant to try some routes because of the threat of crime.
