We were told we needed a guide to hike Devil's Peak. This is not true if you are in reasonable shape and can follow a few trail signs. Turn on to Tafelberg Road and drive 4KM to parking- past the Tram building and past the parking lot for Platteklip Gorge. You will see a Trailhead for Devil's Peak. The standard... 更多
It's quite an effort to get to the top. Take plenty of water. The view from the peak is absolutely breathtaking. 360 degrees view of our magnificent city, well worth the effort. Lovely to have a picnic lunch at the top. Budget 5 hrs round trip.
A hike to the summit of Devil's Peak was awesome. Few people do this hike since most prefer Table Mountain. The views from the top are amazing! Absolutely recommend everyone to do this trek.
This is an excellent half-day hike, but I advise starting as soon as it gets light to avoid getting roasted in the sun. There are many routes up.

Overall it is a moderate hiking and It starts almost in the end of the Tafelberg Road (there is a sign in the beginning). The top can be very windy, so keep a jacket in your backpack.
Devils Peak was a delight! Views with no crowds! It's steep (what isn't on Table Mt), and its hot in January as there is no shade. Good boot/shoe tread is best since gravel/ sand is loose and very steep toward the top. Bring plenty of water, wear a hat and sunscreen as with any TM hike in January. Don't be... 更多
Climbing Devil's Peak is a must for those who liking hiking...and there are those Capetonians who do it daily!!! worth doing for the view, but be well hydrated and wear good boots...
Devils Peak is both a mountain and residential area. Definitely worth a visit. We have a home there. Lovely restaurants and some pubs. We feel safe during daylight time. Be careful after dark. Enjoy.
The place offers a great variety of craft beers! We were particularly impressed with the beer tasting tray! Really cool! There's also a great beer and food pairing on offer! Really lovely place with good service! We will definitely recommend this and will be back to visit again!
