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

Hike this one in the spring and you'll be rewarded with streams and wildflowers. The views at the top are incredible.

Awesome trail! Beware...if you follow this route turn by turn, there is a ton of rock climbing up some slippery paths. Be sure to wear waterproof shoes, as there are some soggy spots. We took the cable car down the other side. Overall pretty demanding trail but the views are worth it!

The footpath is never away from the road. Try not to get there around sunset because the road t'es really noisy.

Nice 360 outlook on the city (north), Table Mountain (east) and 12 Apostles. Rocky footpath, mind your ankles !

Take the time to hike along the reservoirs as well !

For those with poor athletics conditioning it would be very hard. The path is very uneven recommend to use a tracking shoes instead of a running one. Take at least 1 l of water per person.
The view is amazing!
