Detail description:
Exit the main gate at Devonvale and turn left onto Blumeberg Drive. Continue down the hill towards Bottelary Road. Take the dirt track running parallel to Bottelary Road on the left just before the junction. Follow this track past Leeuwenkuil Vineyards (Bottelary Winery) until you reach a brick paved road on the left. Follow the brick paved road (pink arrows) and look out for the start of the Orange route towards the right. Turn right and follow the Orange arrows through the vineyards and around the dams.

The Red route joins Orange from the right at about the halfway mark.
Eventually you join a (broken) asphalt road. Look out for a junction to your left onto a brick paved road. This is the road you entered on. After passing a farm house, the Red route branched off right, but Orange continues straight on the brick paved road. Retrace the route back the way you came to Devonvale.
