Hennops MTB Trail’s unique features are the Hennops river flowing through a valley bordered by mountain ranges to the north and the south. This gives our 90% single track purpose built mountain bike trail a variety of terrain, some steep climbs and descents, lots of natural obstacles and great views to enjoy.

The trail is 40km in total (Elevation gain 500m) and is made up of 6 sections with shortcut options after each sections to make up your own distance.

* Beginner riders: Take the “Short Cut” at Safari and Snake and try the Kayalami section, complete with the Home Run back home. This will be 14km’s. Or take all “Short Cut” options to ride only 10km.

The first section “Safari” starts of with a 30m suspension bridge.

  • Safari (6 km / Elevation gain 100m)

Entering the game fenced 4×4 park. Some steady climbs and downhill single track to negotiate whilst you can keep an eye out for Zebra, Impala, Blouwildebees, and Kudu. In this section the MTB trail crosses the hiking and 4×4 trails on a few occasions

  • Sani (6.4km/ Elevation gain 138m)

The name says it all! If you like mountain climbing – this is the one!
