SANParks announced today that Table Mountain National Park Management opened Lion's Head Trail to the public again, after weeks of maintenance.
Almost all of Lion's Head will once more be open to hiking-aficionados.
Note: There is a section with new infrastructure along the pathway that still requires completion. This will be clearly marked on site. Visitors are asked to comply with the signage on site and use the existing ladder or spiral pathway to reach the summit.

Many illegal trails have been closed as a part of rehabilitation efforts and SANParks asks that visitors respect these closures and stay on the demarcated trail. The conservation team have also commenced vegetation rehabilitation in a number of places and the park requests everyone assist the team with this process by not stepping off the pathway for any reason.
The footpath on the north facing slope from the Kramat leading up to the spiral trail will remain closed for further rehabilitation as a result of the fire event in February 2019.
Also, be sure to take home all your litter when you leave Lion's Head. Take photos and leave only footprints.
