We spent about 2.5 hrs hiking Lions Head on a beautiful Sept. afternoon. The trail starts out rather smooth and wide but it soon changes. It gets steep and a bit challenging but not too hard for a pair of 67 & 69 yr olds. There are iron ladders embedded in the rocks in a few spots where needed. This was a first for us. Then there are sections where there is really no clear path but large rocks to climb over. Finally you reach the top with a 360 degree view of Capetown. At the top you can reward yourself with a snack if you carried one and just sit back and enjoy the view. On the way back down we watched a paraglider take off and ride on the thermals. I would suggest you dress in layers and bring sun screen, water and a snack. Hiking Lions Head is a great way to spend an afternoon in Capetown.
