At 3831m asl, Table mountain + Seven ponds trail gives you the whole package of a breathtaking summit, a terrain to challenge and push your endurance, and high altitude conditioning. The trail is a little steep at the start but gets gentle as you hike up and even more easy since the summit is flat. Truly a worthwhile experience
