Hike up Lions Head
Lions Head is the smaller “sugar loaf” peak alongside Table Mountain. Often called the “best value for energy hike in the Cape” It offers a short (+/- 2 hour) hike with the most amazing views of Cape Town and Table Mountain. Very popular with locals it is often quite busy especially when the South Easter is pumping (strong wind blowing) and the famous Table Cloth is covering Table Mountain thus obscuring the views from here.
The parking area is on Signal hill road and well marked. The trail begins on a wide road that is well marked and circles the mountain on a relatively steep incline. After about 20 minutes as you begin to overlook Clifton the road narrows to a path that continues around the mountain.
