If you're only here for a short while and you need to choose an MTB trail, this is the one. 19km distance, plenty of hills so come prepares. Seriously fast singletrack through the forest, lots of tree roots to negotiate, then the killer climb...I pushed up most of the way but is all worthwhile when you reach the top. Finishing off with a fast singletrack back through the forest to the starting point. Took me about 1h35. Get your permit at the gate, park at Krisjan se nek, near the big tree and start. Route is well marked. Do it.

This was a very difficult bike trail. I think for beginners I'd recommend easier trails. And from the ratings it's not that "difficult" but for the inexperienced person it can be quite painful on the thighs. Overall it's a great experience no matter how long it takes you to the reach the top- it's worth the pain sweat and multiple stop breaks. Beautiful views! The old picnic spot up the mountain with the views has been closed because of high maintenance, but when you come down the mountain there is a spot with benches for a picnic and rest. Toilets are long drop toilets so just be aware of that. Entrance is currently R42/person. We opted to rent two mountain bikes for R250 each and went up alone, the markings are quite clear and shouldn't be a problem.

Awesome ride, tough but worth your effort. Lots of uphill climb but rewarding downhill's. Do not go on this ride alone, you want to share this experience.

The route is very nice. And not that tough. BUT. The 4km climb is a bit hectic. But the views at the top is worth it. Just be aware the climb is seriously 4km upwards. Non stop. If you can do it. Great.
