Took me and two friends just about two hours to reach the top! It was a lovely hike. A few wet areas with flowing water we had to cross but I think that is a result of the rain the last couple days rather than the norm.

Great hike although pretty hard.

Climbed again Monday 4/30/2018 at 10:00 AM with wife, daughters and 4 friends from Cape Town. Took a little over 2 hours! Perfect day! Unbelievable views! Hard but worth every bit of effort.

Beautiful,isolated and challenging. All the important factors for a good hike

Best outdoor app

Not technically very difficult, just a long and steep climb. It took about 3 hours to complete with frequent breaks. We took the cable car back down. Definitely recommend this hike, it has a beautiful view.

Beautiful view, paved route throughout.

Short walk to the falls suitable for families and includes a swimming hole. Steeper paved walk to the lookout with stunning views. Located in Royal Natal Park. Many other trails for all experience levels available.

Hectic and really hard but well worth it

Scenic level hike - great at sunset

One of the most amazing trails I have ever enjoyed!

Excellent

Breath taking.

We summited the Mount Aux Sources on the 28 January 2018. Its breathtaking to walk until the Ampithetre and the view from the Top its amazing.

Great hike. Used hikeraddict guide, Martin. Excellent guide.

Super easy trail with amazing views. This trail is good for older adults or kids.

This trail has incredible views! It has some difficult scrambling sections as well as a section with metal staples and chain ropes for a vertical climb. You can take your dog, but unless you're ok with carrying your dog up the vertical section, its best to take the alternate trail around to reach the top. I highly recommend this trail but go prepared!

Great walk gives you a good feel for the area

Location is incorrect. Pinetown is not in the Western Cape, but in Kwazulu-natal.

Awesome secluded beach for a relaxed beach day!

Allow 8 hours to reach the summit and return. Start and finish the trail at the Witfontein Forestry station just outside George. No fee is currently payable but registration / permit must be completed at the forestry station. Parking is available there. There is a short section of scrambling near the summit where care must be exercised and it would not be recommended to attempt this in bad weather. An alternative trail ( no scrambling ) can be taken at the saddle by turning right to George peak ( 1337m asl ). Turning left at the saddle will lead to Cradock peak ( 1578m asl ). The total trail distance out and back is 18.4kms.

no dangerous route, many beautiful vieuws, every 50m up gives another vieuw over cape- town.

There aren't enough stars.. my favorite place on the planet!! Crashing ocean, mountains.. trail that goes through mountain...

I love South Africa and Cape Town is a beautiful city and no better way to see it but from the top of table mountain

Great hike in the city. Well marked and amazing 360 degree views. Moderate is the right rating as there are some sections with exposure. More difficult routes with scrambling options available. If you want to find Wally's Cave: go past the first ladder (do not go up it), go the old bench and go DOWN to the LEFT, traverse until you see an opportunity to scramble up to the right. If you go too high you'll end up on a flat lookout with a steep drop off
