First of all, sorry for the use of the word “fitfluencer”, but these are the times we live in.
Secondly, can we bow our heads for a moment and think of all the lost likes and unphotographed activewear selfies. We’ll get through this together, Cape Town.
Yeah, it’s true – Lion’s Head will be closed for maintenance from today (January 7) right through until February 15, which is almost six weeks, although Signal Hill will remain open as a viewing point.
If you hold your phone to your ear, you might be able to hear that friend of yours who posts continuously to Instagram crying.
Traveller24 reports below:
Full closure is required for the successful completion of this “much needed intervention’ on the popular spiral trail up to the summit, says SANParks.
The aim is to “improve the longevity of the trail, safety of hikers in the area and the environmental protection of the Lions Head and Signal Hill”, following a Trail Audit Report on the Lions Head and Signal Hill footpath network was completed [sic].
Minor upgrades that did not interrupted trail access [sic] have been done since the report results were completed in 2017 however, TMNP will now embark on one of the more intensive phases of the project where the condition of the trail will be addressed.
“No access will be permitted to hikers or runners via the track entrance along Signal Hill Drive. This includes the restriction on access after sunset and before sunrise. Due to the maintenance in progress we cannot guarantee the safe passage of visitors along the path way and hence the entire trail will be closed,” says SANParks.
Sjoe, spanner in the works for the ‘Gram, innit?
Let’s hope the fitfluencers have some of these stored up to post over the coming weeks:
Who are we kidding – of course they do.
Senior Section Ranger at SANParks, Jaclyn Smith, spoke with CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies about the closure:
Fair enough, really.
We’ll give the final word to the Lion’s Head Twitter account:
