Magoebaskloof Green Route is a 22 km popular intermediate route located near Haenertsburg. This mountain bike primary route can be used one direction and has a moderate overall physical rating. This route climbs 553 m with a max elevation of 1,637 m then descends -556 m.

It starts at the Coffee shop at Cheerio Gardens then goes through the amazing Wegraakbosch organic farm and dairy with a technical downhill singletrack through their indigenous forest. (Please remember to close the cattle gates.)

From there you go through a section of the Magoebaskloof MTB XCO track before climbing the infamous Mount Merrick.

From the summit at the Long Tom Monument there is a long flowing downhill section to the river before you follow it to Zwakala River Retreat and Zwakala Brewery.

The last stretch back to Cheerio is uphill but worth it as you traverse the beautiful Sequoia Gardens, onto Cheerio Trout Fishing and Holiday Resort and finally back to Cheerio Gardens. (You will want to return to Zwakala afterwards for one of their award winning lagers)
