The peak to the right of Table Mountain (as seen from the city) is known as Lion's Head. The path up to the 669-meter summit spirals its way through a fantastic diversity of indigenous fynbos including the beautiful Silver Tree. There are plenty of opportunities to catch your breath while admiring the great views. Towards the top there is a bit of a climb with a series of chains secured into the rocks to help you up the steepest sections. The final scramble is well rewarded with breath-taking panoramic views of Table Mountain, the city, the Atlantic coastline, Robben Island and the Twelve Apostles (a series of twelve peaks) stretching down the peninsula. This is a particularly popular hike on the eve of a full moon when small groups gather on the summit to watch the sunset and the moon rise.
This is a great hike. Takes about and hour up and a little less down. Amazing views of the mountain, sea, and city once you are up. You can go on a full moon and you'll actually find it quite crowded up there. There are some spots where you climb with chains in the rocks, but there is an alternate route if that's not your thing.
