Table Mountain – Hiking Routes

Table Mountain hiking routes are thrilling, breathtaking and any mountain lover’s paradise!

 

We offer a variety of hiking routes on Table MountainLion’s Head and Devil’s Peak, which varies from easy walking to adrenaline pumping.

We often get asked if it is exhausting to climb Table Mountain. The answer is of course, yes. You have to climb a few hundred metres to the top, but every metre is worth it! 

The mountain is filled with beautiful and rare flora, birds and living creatures on the ground, and together with the extraordinary scenery of Cape Town, all the routes we offer have the potential to blow you away.

During a South-Easter, you can literally blow away or off the mountain, and after heavy rains, when the rocks are slippery, it is unsafe to hike. Therefore hiking in Cape Town is weather dependant.

Most of our routes are B-Grade routes, which means some kind of scrambling is required to get to the top. Scrambling is when you need to use all your limbs to climb up a pitch of rocks. These pitches are usually short and not exposed. Some hiking routes have more scrambles than others. More detail can be found on the individual pages of each route below. None of the hiking routes we offer require the use of a rope, however we always carry a safety rope with us in case someone feels the need for the extra bit of security.

We also offer A-Grade routes, which requires no scrambling, but although it might be less adventurous, you will not miss out on any beauty the mountain has to offer!

If you want to explore a specific Table Mountain hiking route, which is not listed below, you can request to hike that route.
