The oldest and most popular route up the mountain is a steady climb of about 2.5 hours up stairs up the front of the mountain. Once at the top of the gorge we walk along the flat top to the highest point on Table Mountain, Maclear's Beacon at 1086m. To return to the Cable Car we walk along the front, city edge of the Table top for spectacular views of the city, Lion's Head and Devil's Peak all the way back. Appropriate walk for the whole family.
Approx. 5-6 hours
If short on time, skip Maclear's Beacon and head straight to the Cable Car.
Approx 3-4 hours
