Signal Hill

S 33 55.057 E 018 24.166

Signal Hill is also known as Lion's Rump, and the spine or ridge that extends from the "rump" to the pointed lion's head separates the downtown city bowl from Sea Point. Signal Hill is easily accessible via Signal Hill Road, which hugs the ridge and provides impressive views of the city and harbor. There are a handful of scenic lookout points along the road and a park area at the top of Signal Hill that is a popular destination for afternoon picnics and watching sunsets. You can also walk up Signal Hill Road or hike one of the nearby trails to take in the views, but the up-hill path can be a workout.
