Hiking up Devils Peak
Devils Peak is the large Peak to the left of Table Mountain if you look at it from Cape Town. Although 1000m high so only 85m lower than Maclears Beacon, it is often an ignored area for walking, which is a pity as it has some of the best hiking on the Table Mountain Chain.
The easiest way to the top is from Tafelberg Rd via the Saddle Path. To get there you drive past the parking area of Platteklip gorge and park at the next path that leads up the mountain. This is a well contoured path that leads first to the contour path and then on up onto the saddle which is at 650m. You should reach the saddle after about 40 mins walking.
