This route starts at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The beginning of the hike is in the shade of a densely wooded indigenous forest. It is relatively steep but is well frequented. The route ascends steeply up the ravine and ladders assist hikers in a few steep rocky sections.
The forest gradually gives way to local fynbos towards the top and opens up for you to enjoy magnificent views over False Bay, The Constantia valley and The Hottentots Holland Mountain range. The route takes us to the highest point on Table Mountain (Maclears Beacon).
The route ends at the upper cable station. We descended via cable way (weather dependant) or walk down (additional 1-2 hours).
