Attraction details
Owner description: Lion's Head in Cape Town is a peak situated at 669 meters above sea level. The hike up Lions Head takes approximately 90 minutes at a moderate pace. Lions Head trail is steep but do-able, while the 5.5km trail packs a punch (Both ways). The views from Lions head are amazing. Take a look around you and see the beauty. Lions Head hike is the preferred route for mountain enthusiasts, the easiest of the routes in Cape Town.

This was a great way to see Table Mountain and city views. Very fun hike and climb that didn't take up too much time.

This is a very easy climb and will take 30-60 minutes depending on your fitness level. Great sense of achievement and views from the top. Must do!

A very long and trying hike. Don't do it if you have health issues. The stairs and rocks are high uneven so and steady wins the race.

Hike was easy during the first half but gets more physical for the last 20 mins. If you are scared of heights just keep moving forward. As you climb up you wont realize how you are at until you are at the peak. It is worth the hike if you are game for it. Hiking down could be tricky if it is dark - do grab a headlight with you.
