This trail is a nice alternative to Table Mountain. We have extended the trail to V&A Waterfront which gives a nice mix between wildlife and city walk. it is an easy walk. Walking down from Signal Hill to V&A Waterfront is a bit steep.

Très belle randonnée. Très facile au début. Devient un peu plus difficile passer la première échelle, et plus abrupte lorsque vous avez le choix de passer par les chaînes ou le petit détour. Très beau pound de vu au sommet. Partie tôt 7h am vous pouvez profiter alors d’une bonne portion a l’ombre sur un des versent.

Starting at Kloof Nek parking instead of closer to the start of the Diagonal route adds a nice 45-minute "warmup" to the hike--only a few extra km, and a beautiful walk. Be sure to stop at the cave before rounding Porcupine Buttress and take in the views. The scrambles on the Diagonal are (for the most part) balanced out with fairly flat sections, so there is usually a respite between climbs. The longest scramble is up Porcupine Ravine, but the views are phenomenal. Turning the route into a loop and returning via Kasteelspoort is a nice alternative, and makes the return a bit more interesting. Both trails are hot in summer and have very little shade; please be careful to bring enough water. :-)

Fun trail! Very popular so expect a crowd and expect a queue for the ladders.

Great walk. Shame the top was in cloud. Awesome views further down. Can be tricky in places.

This is an awesome hike that I could do everyday - most epic views anywhere, great elevation gain for a short hike. My third time over the last week with Clara Erickson! Love the ladders and vertical scrambles!

Hiked at sunset with Clara Erickson. We started at the trailhead at ~6:30 pm and there were tons of people hiking at this time, some bringing beer to drink and others a bottle of wine. Lots of waiting when we got to the ladder area. Very cool sunset and relaxed vibe on the top. We stayed until there was still 10-15 minutes left before it would be getting real dark, hiking in The dark on the lower part of the trail. It was very cool seeing all of the lights coming down the peak after sunset. In the lower part of the trail we saw 2 Scorpions and almost stepped on them! Probably not a good idea to wear flip flops on the sunset hike! This is clearly one of my favorite hikes ever given the views and ladders!!

First hike done in Cape Town. Great hike for taking pictures

This is one of the most beautiful hikes and scrambles I have ever been on. The views are incredible and the ladders, handholds, chains and the exposure make the hike slightly scary —- a requirement for a truly great hike.

Great morning hike - round trip took about 2 hours with a break at the top. Benches along the way. Rock scrambling, ladders, and heights.

Ein super Weg mit grossartiger Aussicht auf Camps Bay, Capetown und Signal Hill. Waren im November oben, über Mittag. Viele Leute bei wunderschönstem Wetter. Als 58jähriger benötigte ich knapp eine Stunde, meine beiden Töchter etwa 40-45 Minuten. Die einzelnen Stahlleitern und Griffe verlangen doch etwas Konzentration. Das sind aber nur drei kurze Passagen. Ansonsten gut ausgebaut, unterhalten und felsig.

What a great trail! It starts off quite rocky, and ends with some fun berms and table-tops. The rocky section is stimulating and exciting, but is not hectically technical. Really loved it!

Amazing!! Did this in April on a beautiful sunny day but Bring a sweater for the top as it gets quite chilly and weather can be changeable. Incredible views

Beautiful hike, especially for sunrise, with lots of lookout points and not very difficult.
