Great hike. Unfortunately we had poor visibility at the summit, but all in all a wonderful experience!

Nice vineyard hike!

The trail is closed for remediation for at least month of February 2019. verify it's open before making plans to climb. otherwise, this is a must-do hike in cape town.

Spectacular views all the way up. Start at dawn in summer. Take time at the top to look back down from the west rim and explore the front rim on your way to the cable car. Take the cable car down!

Starts very easy. But later it becomes harder. Very good and diversified trail.

one of my favourites. you can make this into an in and out track or into a loop by switching onto one of the other trails. some parts shaded with incredible vistas and some other parts in the sun. I nice easy trail depending again on how you do it. recently had a fall on a mother mountain and this trail was the perfect one to get back on the proverbial horse so to speak. we wen up the jeep track and climbed a little against the side by the houses and then merged with an blue mountain back track until we hit the jeep track again.

Completed this hike because Lion’s Head was closed. It was an easy 4 mile loop with really good views of the city, table top mountain and lions head. Unfortunately, there was a fire on signal hill so most of the land we hiked through was burnt and black. It was also pretty cloudy so couldn’t get the best view of table mountain. I still recommend this hike if you want something easy and still can get a great view of the city.

Loved it! A very popular trial, well defined and maintained. Pretty much vertical for the whole way and plenty of places to stop and take in the wonderful scenery.

A great leg stretch and enjoyable beach walk. Suggest start at Brenton on Sea, and take some money for snacks at Buffalo Bay before heading back.

Awesome hike. I would rate this hike moderate difficulty, but we definitely got a good workout, plus the view is amazing. Bring extra socks. My feet got wet during stream crossings, and it was cold at the upper cableway in December. The trail is well marked but my off-line map helped.

Stunning views on Ocean, Table mountain, 12 apostles and city. Quite easy access to the top, even if some rock climbing and ladders close to the arrival. But what is the most painful is ... how crowded the path is. We started at 8:15am, but already a lot of people.

Amazing trail, amazing views from the top. Pretty much straight up from the beginning with very few easy stretches. If you like a real challenge, you’ll love this trail.

Great hike with gorgeous views, but is very steep in some spots, as in straight up some large boulders. Detour to Kloof Corner was worth it - amazing views. People with good fitness and some basic rock climbing skills will do fine. This hike should NEVER be done in wet conditions. .One other thing is that the trail can be difficult to follow so you should go slow enough to confirm you are following the yellow markings. From what I’ve read, most of the deaths on this hike have occurred either in bad weather conditions or when people accidentally went off the trail.

This place is massive, could fit Jurassic Park inside here. Not well marked however, spent a lot of needless time looking for where to go. AllTrails gps overly also does not correspond and is inaccurate here. As a result I couldn’t do the full loop as described above but did twede waterfall which was cool. Probably 3 miles round trip after you drive into the second parking area, 3/4 in the sun going up hill, then the last 1/4 of the path you’re in the shade going through a gorge/stream till you come to the dead end cave where the water fall is. Permit to hike here is 50 ZAR for the day, it’s a world heritage site.

Loved it, sort of rivals half dome.

Absolutely beautiful. We had an especially windy day and it was difficult to keep from being blown off the trail.

Beautiful hike! Definitely challenging, steep, switchbacks. Coming back down will keep those legs loose! It’s amazing at the top definitely worth it.
