BLUE ROUTE – 8km (NOVICE)

The blue trail is specifically designed for families, young and old. A leisurely ride for beginners with some downhill and uphill challenges to keep it exciting and fun. This trail is 90% on gravel roads and 10% on jeep-tracks. This scenic trail will provide close-up views of antelope as you will cycle past two water holes. As this route is mainly on the reserve’s gravel roads, please expect to encounter self-drive vehicles from time to time. Kids under 12 are free, please note that no children under the age of 12 are allowed without adult supervision.

YELLOW ROUTE – 15km (INTERMEDIATE)

This yellow trail will allow you to explore all the corners of the reserve with approx. 50% on gravel roads, 30% on jeep-tracks and 20% on single-tracks. Some areas on the single-track can be technical, but most of this trail provides a leisurely ride. The reserve is home to many different antelope species, so make sure to do some spotting whilst working those legs. As the Zulu name Pelindaba “end of story’’ suggests, precaution should be taken on the single-tracks as Pelindaba rock can be sharp. The property falls within the UNESCO Magaliesberg Biosphere. Please note that you may encounter self-drive vehicles on some areas on this trail.

RED ROUTE – 20km (ADVANCE)

Ready for some serious climbs? This red trail is approx. 50% single-track, 25% jeep-track and 25% on gravel roads. This trail offers beautiful scenic views of mountains and plains. This trail descents with some tricky bits down towards the Crocodile river requiring care and skill (some areas are very rocky).  This is a tough one, but the stunning ride along the river and the beautiful views at the viewpoint makes it so worth it! Please note that you may encounter self-drive vehicles on some areas on this trail.
