Mountain Bike Trails

Mountain bike trails are clearly marked and rated on the farm.  Some 4x4 trails are also suitable for mountain biking.  Some trails start in the foothills of the mountains and offers a number of serious rock obstacles, rapid descents and steep climbs as well as flat areas.  The mountain trails are definitely not for the novice cyclist but there are many routes on the plateau and in the flatter areas for beginner riders.   Beginners or casual riders can have great family fun and enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery along the different trails which provides the added bonus of game-viewing opportunities at leisure. 

There are four colour-coded trails, rated from beginner trails to advance trails.  Most trails starts off with a cruise from the different farm accommodation units, but it is not long before you get into the climb. There are four options going up, the first goes up in the kloof alongside a natural stream with some steep climbing but a beautiful shaded area with a real “Knysna” feeling.  You are most likely to find the bushbucks here!  The second, third and fourth routes up is from the White House farmhouse.  One route is barely rideable due to the insanely steep gradient and loose rock patches – this is guaranteed to get the heart rate pumping and the adrenalin flowing on the descent!  The next route up is an easier climb with beautiful panoramic views of the farm and you’re almost guaranteed to see some Zebra and Kudu along this way.  The last route up is further along the right-hand side of the farm also following a stream at some places with some climbing but breath taking views of the farm
