    Please be careful, and don't do this alone or in small groups: my fiance and I were walking on the trail in this area when we were accosted by two would-be muggers. One was waving a knife and making threats, but fortunately for us another 4 hikers appeared at the perfect moment, and the pair eventually ran away. According to the cops, there are currently over 30 cases on file for muggings in this area. We were at approximately -33.9281583,18.9019645 (position in Google Maps) when it happened. One of our rescuers had a GoPro, so we have some (blurry) footage of the two guys: https://s3.amazonaws.com/gs-geo-images/8afa3df0-1bd7-480d-85ad-5ee75e13f6bf_l.png
