MTB TRAIL

Hennops MTB Trails

Hennops MTB Trails is situated west of Pretoria only 30km from Centurion and Fourways. The trails are located on Hennops Farm which is also home to Hennops Hiking Trails and Hennops Offroad Trails. The mountain bikes do not use the same trails as the hikers or 4×4, they have their own purpose built trails.

The MTB trails are made up of 6 sections with a shortcut home after each section so that the rider can make his or her own distance.

RIVER

The first section is called River. This section is flat and shady and meanders next to the Hennops River. It is suitable for children and beginner riders. On the River section you cross the river by suspension bridge. All riders will use River before they continue with the rest of the trail

SAFARI

The second section is called Safari. This goes through the game fenced 4×4 section. Some steady climbs and downhill single track to negotiate whilst you can keep an eye out for Zebra, Impala, Gnu and Kudu.

SNAKE

The third section is called Snake. This is a twisting mountain single track with many switch backs. Come test your technical skills here, but be careful as the name suggest, the Snake can bite.

KAYALAMI

Kayalami is a flat, fast, super smooth flowing single track with long and short corners to test your flat terrain riding. The faster you go the more difficult it is to complete.
