Would it be better to take the cable car up the mountain and hike down?
Most people say its better (easier) hiking up than down.
Do both Hike up and down the Cable way is closed until mid august for maintenance.

Whether you plan to hike up or down Table Mountain, please ensure that you have someone with you who knows the way. Every year, people get stuck or lost on the mountain. It is not just a simple little stroll. The weather can change within a few minutes and when the mist comes over, it is very easy to lose your bearings.
