LEGAL

Cape Town's most iconic hike. This quick route offers constant stunning views of the city and surrounds. There is a lot of foot-traffic on Lion's Head, although it is ideal for a sunrise or sunset hike.

LION'S HEAD

The quickest and by far the most popular route up the front of Table Mountain. The walk is a slog and the zigzags can get frustrating but the views are great and the reward once on top is well worth the effort.

PLATTEKLIP GORGE

Skeleton Gorge is a popular route and not without reason. The trail criss-crosses a stream through lush afromontane forest where shade and birdsong are plentiful. The gorge ends at the Hely-Hutchinson Dam - a perfect spot for a snack after the climb.

SKELETON GORGE

Don't let the name put you off! This 1 000 m peak has sensational views in every direction and is worth every bit of sweat getting there. This route offers pristine Fynbos and some respite from the winds which often howl around the peak!

DEVILS PEAK

For those with a sense of adventure, this hike offers a more interesting (but more difficult) alternative to the Platteklip Gorge. This steep route winds around Venster Buttress with small scrambling sections and incredible views all the way up.

INDIA VENSTER

This relatively easy and popular hike leads one to a large gash in Constantiaberg's eastern face. The cave is full of ferns and mystique and the views are pretty decent too.

ELEPHANT'S EYE CAVE

The route up Kasteelpoort is one of the easier routes up the western slopes of Table Mountain. This steep route offers spots for epic views of the Atlantic, surrounding cliffs and quick access to the dams and one of Instagram's most famous rocks.

KASTEELPOORT

The deep gouge in the side of Devil's Peak. The size of this cave will take your take your breath-away, as will the view of the city bowl and west coast below.

WOODSTOCK CAVE

A popular hike that is steep but also relatively short and less slippery than the nearby Skeleton Gorge. The ravine isn't named Nursery for nothing - the trail includes beautiful forests and dense, wild Fynbos with plenty of birds and proteas.

NURSERY RAVINE

If you need a quick dose of 360° views from a peak, then this the ideal hike. Take the dog and family along for great short hike.

ELSIE'S PEAK

Few peaks on the Peninsula offer such incredible views for as little effort as this hike. Although shade is scarce, this hike should be on any bucket list, and is particularly pleasant as a winter activity.

CHAPMAN'S PEAK

Named after its similar appearance to its bigger cousin, this hike is a shorter and less crowded alternative. Expect rewarding 360° views with minimal effort required.
