The Directions

Follow Camp Road (to the right of Muizenberg Park) until you reach a set of steps, which you’ll need to follow up to Boyes Drive. Once you get to Boyes Drive, turn left and pretty immediately on your right you’ll see a trailhead carved out of the wall.
 
There should be a Table Mountain National Park sign here for Farmer Peck’s Valley. Take the immediate right and follow the trail up inbetween St James’s Peak and Muizenberg Peak. There may be a few deviations, but as long as you stick to the path heading up between the two mountains, you will be fine (if memory serves you’ll take another right and then a left, but it’s quite obvious). It should take no more than 40 minutes to reach the plateaux.
 
Shortly after reaching the top you’ll come to a four way junction. There will be a small sign on the floor indicating that the right turn will take you to Muizenberg Peak and therefore to the viewpoint. Follow this trail up for about 20 minutes and then return the way you came. You’ll know you’re at the very peak when you see a white bollard. The views from here are quite impressive!
