Mountain Bike Trails 

The Magaliesberg has a wide variety of dirt roads, ranging from easy terrain (such as the Barnardsvlei Road) to the physically demanding Breed’s Neck Mountain Pass, which rises from an altitude 1360m in the north to 1670m at the crest before dropping down to 1440m when it joins the R24 in the south. From the crest of the pass it loses 120m in the first 1.1 Km – that’s a stiff return ride! The Barnard’s road, on the other hand, has a low-point of 1200m and a maximum altitude of 1330m – a total elevation difference of 100m over a distance 11.5 Km – an easy ride in anyone’s language.

Not only is there a beautiful swimming pool near the campsite (but far away enough for people to play without disturbing campers in their siesta), but there are also several natural rock-pools scattered around the park in which you can enjoy a refreshing swim.

Walking trails
We have hiking trails that vary form 15 minutes walk to 8 hours, depending on how far you want to go, crystal clear mountain pools can be seen on all the trails. you are not restricted by guiding hikes, a map is explained to you on arrival, so take your time, enjoy and experience the mountains in their untouched state. The reserve does NOT have marked hiking routes due to the sensitive nature of the terain, so DO NOT expect painted footprints or well marked trails.
