It is a serious climb, with more climb and a higher peak than Lion's Head. The path is in spots rocky, steep and overgrown. Make sure to look at the last picture and read the comments below it. We took a wrong turn early and fell off the correct path, if you download this trail make sure to follow it in reverse. The path coming down was much easier to follow and extends a lot further to the north (and towards Simon's Town harbour) than we originally thought. We followed it easily on the way down and back to our car. Parking is available on the street at the start point (Churchill Ave and Smuts Drive). There are some stone markers and a burnt sign but mostly you are on your own, heading up towards the highest peak in the area with very few other hikers.
This is a hidden gem and one of my favourite hikes in the area. Pick a calm day when you can see the peak from the street and you will be rewarded!
