Lion's Head hiking trail officially re-opens after delays

1 March 2019 6:20 PM
Spokesperson Babalwa Dlangamandla asks visitors to comply with signage, as a section of the pathway is still being worked on.

Cape Town's hikers will be happy to hear that they can venture up to the top of Lion's Head again this weekend, after the hiking trail re-opened on Friday.

In January, South African National Parks (SANParks) had to close the trail for necessary maintenance work.

Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) spokesperson Babalwa Dlangamandla explains that this was also vital to ensure the safety of trail users.

We had to do much-needed maintenance of the trails. So what we did we had to close all the illegal trails and make sure that we install the new pathwalk to ensure visitors are safe when they are walking along the trail even on the spiral pathway that leads to the summit.

She points out that a fire in February delayed the work on the trail.

There was a fire in February so we have to make sure that everything is in place and the rehabilitation process takes place.

Dlangamandla appealed to the public to comply with signage, as there is a part of the pathway that is still being worked on.

We made sure there are signages in place to make sure people know where to go and if they want to visit Lion's Head anytime.
