MTB (Mountain Trail Biking) / Cycling

From the forest gate at the most northern point of our gardens you are able to access the state forest which boasts unlimited MTB tracks. Terrain is mostly quality gravel and jeep track as well as some specific single track routes.

We suggest you contact one of the many MTB based in the Garden Route who arrange regular meets. One such example is the Hill Billies - please visit their website for info on trails, meets, etc.

GATE CLOSURES: (gates will be locked outside of the below times)

September to April:            07h00 – 19h00
May – August:                      07h30 – 18h00

Please note: the front gate and forest access gate will be locked after normal gate hours. To avoid having your car or yourself being locked in, ensure you are back timeously.

Also note that venturing alone in the state forest is not advised and there have been incidences in the past. We suggest you cycle in larger groups and inform others of your intended route. Please take note of the below emergency contact details...
