OVERVIEW

This is a genuine MOUNTAIN bike trail. Set out in the Rooiberge of the Eastern Free State, near Fouriesburg. Beautiful and varied single trail purpose built for authentic mountaing biking. Excellent views along most of the trail. This is for the adventurer who wants more than just riding on gravel roads and jeep tracks. You will not want to ride this exciting trail just once!!![div2 class="highlight1"]

On your bike

The MTB route is a new addition at Camelroc Guest Farm and has been laid out in the mountainous region of the Eastern Free State. We have two routes. A 10km figure eight route which is completely on Camelroc Guest Farm. The second route is 30km, with some two short-cuts to reduce the route to 10km's and 20km's as well. This route is quite difficult with a very tough climb up to the mountain top. The trail is mostly single track and quite technical. Riders are advised not to ride beyond their capability. If in doubt "get off and push". The trail has been very well laid out with great variety. Winding through trees, along the Small Caledon river, climbing the mountain, long winding down-hills (after the climb!!) Beautiful views overlooking the Maluti mountains, the two Caledon rivers, rural Lesotho, and viewing Blesbuck.
