If you feel like escaping the bustle of the city,this is the place to go.Beautiful flora and walkways meandering around the dam.Picnic spots are private 'built in' rocks and plenty of shade.Swimming in the dam is refreshing in summer and the water is amazing.No braai facilities.PS: bathroom is a long drop.Its a real haven for nature lovers.

The Silvermine reserve is great year round. Summer swims in the reservoir after a walk is top of my list, but then I think of spring walks with at the fynbos and proteas in bloom and can't decided. Mid winter crispness when the rain has turned everything green is just one more reason it's my fav place!

Silvermine Nature Reserve is right on our doorstep and what a blessing! What a wonderful hike to Elephants Eye Cave on a Sunday morning.
Awesome....World Class views over the Southern Suburbs and then a nice hike back!
Clean and well prepared hiking trails, well done and see you soon!

Wonderful way to spend a day, walk the well marked trails, easy walks in shaded woods or more difficult trails if that is your thing.
