Walking the cliff path from
There are 2 ways to walk from Maclears Beacon to Platteklip Gorge. Both take you across the Central Table area of Table Mountain. On a clear day the cliff path takes you right along the front of Table Mountain overlooking the city.
This is a wonderful path with unbeatable views of the cable car, Lions Head, the entire city and Table Bay. Although never too precipitous it is definitely not a route to take if it is very wet or windy. Just one mistep and you could fall all the way to Tafelberg rd below.
