Happy Monday Trailers

Returning to an ol' fave, we're City and Sea side this Saturday.

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 hit the trail, put our lungs back in, and turn right to run above Sea Point. 

We follow the Lions Head Path all the way around the bottom of Lions Head, dodging the tourists as we pass the start of the Lions Head hiking trail to head back along the rump of the Lion, right passed the Kramat to the 2nd parking area .
Here we can choose to "out and back" to Signal Hill lookout before turning down towards Bo-Kaap. Taking the first left and then right we find our way to the noon day gun, where we pause to take some pics with the "big guns" and of the view before continuing our way down the side of signal hill.  

We make our way back to the cars down side streets to run through Green Point park and return to the lighthouse (again please be mindful of traffic).
