It connects to the historical Pipe Track and heads up Kasteelpoort which is a steady climb up a beautiful, open ravine. Halfway up, visit ‘breakfast rock’ which is a great photo spot with views of Lions Head and the Atlantic Ocean. Once at the top of Kasteelpoort, take a moment to check out the remnants of the Old Cableway. Here there is an opportunity for the brave to go out onto ‘diving board rock’ for the amazing picture to show others back home.

    From the Old Cableway, the path heads up part of the Valley of the Red Gods and into the Valley of Isolation which has interesting rock formations creating a bowl-like valley. Then, it descends into Echo Valley and up the backside of Table Mountain up 3 ladders. Here, the views overlooking the city below are not to be missed. Once at the top, the descent is via the Cableway weather permitting.
