Spring is here and there's no better way of kicking off the hiking season in Cape Town with a climb to one of the peninsula's best view points.

A little known treasure of a walk with spectacular views over False Bay and Noordhoek.

Giant's Causeway 2012-04-09 3.8 km2.3 mi 1h:23m 37 photos


One of the most amazing natural wonders of the world, with the added advantage of having Bushmills distillery, a stone's throw away!

Blinkwater Ravine 2012-03-18 10.9 km6.8 mi 6h:44m 34 photos


Officially this trail has been closed by Table Mountain National Park, but with some care it remains an exciting assent up the mountain, first to the lip of a 20 m waterfall and then up the river bed itself, above the falls (dry in summer). At the point where the gorge narrows and appears to reach a dead end, take a path up a series of ledges to the left.

Dark gorge 2012-03-11 7.4 km4.6 mi 5h:30m 38 photos


This is an interesting little gem of a gorge which is not that well known due to its proximity to Newlands Ravine, which is the standard way up to the Saddle from the Contour Path. Care must be taken near the top, which is very steep and should not be attempted after rain.

A final search for "ingonyama" came to nothing. We found tracks suggesting that she and her cubs were sheltering in an impenetratable thicket of wattle .

Little Lion's Head 2011-07-31 2.2 km1.4 mi 1h:30m 11 photos


If you ever have a couple of hours to spare, head out to this little koppie overlooking the majestic Llandudno beach and Sandy Bay. Start by buzzing yourself through the security gate on Valley View Drive (off Mount  Rhodes Drive) and walk up to the top of the road to the mast and turn left up a well marked path.

Devils Peak 2011-05-01 7 km4.3 mi 5h:06m 46 photos


Another classic hike, for those who like a bit of a thrill and like looking down into big open spaces.

India Venster 2011-04-17 2.8 km1.7 mi 3h:20m 37 photos


Possibly among the best hikes in the world, India Venster is a must for any one with a sence of adventure. The tricky sections are now assisted by chains and staples, but even with this extra protection, do not attempt this hike if you are inexperienced and do not have a head for heights.
