TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 28 May 2022: Lions Head, Signal Hill loop

Good Morning Trailers

This Saturday we're City side to a familiar haunt but without the usual climb from the light house.

Route details
We warm up with a trot up the road to the start of the Lions Head Path trail. We'll join up with the Lions Head jeep track to the back of the head (no we're not going all the way up), by now our lungs should be awake and we'll stretch our legs taking the path left down to the Kramat. Follow the single track to the next parking lot where we can decide whether to visit the Signal Hill lookout before we continue down to the Noon Gun.
From the Noon Gun we'll follow the jeep track heading below the Signal Hill lookout (not dropping down to the trees), it becomes a single track along which we'll head back towards Lions Head. After finding our way back to the Kramat we'll drop down to the right of Lions Head above Fresnaye and hopefully enjoy views of Clifton and the 12 Apostles, returning to Koofneck parking via the Glen.

Please remember this a social pack run led by committee with plenty of opportunities for photographs, and its important that we look out for each other. Within your speed group, please ensure that if you come to a turn that the runner behind you has seen which way you go.  

Rendezvous and Start Time
