TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS TMT 24 April 2021 Saturday: Mouille Point lighthouse - Lions Head/Signal Hill Loop

Hi Trailers

We start at another light house for our next route.

Route details
From Mouille Point (Green Point) lighthouse, we warm up along beach road and head up Glengariff Road (please be mindful of traffic).  At the top of Glengariff, we catch our breath, then hit the trail turning right to run above Sea Point below the rump of the lion. 

Following the Lions Head Path, at the intersection below the Kramat we keep low and continue around the base of Lions Head returning to the Kramat.

From the Kramat it's a nice flowing run along Signal Hill ridge to the next parking area where we turn right to head down towards the noon day gun above the City side.  We pause here to take some great pics with the cannons and of the view before our slalom down the side of the mountain to Green Point.  

Continuing our decent we make our way through the houses down to Green Point park and return to the lighthouse (again please be mindful of traffic).
