Hennops Mtb and hiking trail venue is just outside Johannesburg and equally accessible from Pretoria.
A ride will cost you R50.
Coffee, pancakes and other snacks are great you as you finish.
It’s increasingly popular so arrive early.
It’s fenced and secure.
A +-38km well-marked route is almost all purpose-built singletrack.
The trail flows well, and you get that big mountain explorative feeling.
The scenery of rolling hills on exquisitely made wide bench cut trails keeps the excitement high.
Our favourite part is the Snake trail which seems to be accessible to Moutainbikers only with no signs of hikers anywhere. The rest of the trails crisscross the hiking and 4×4 track, but we never felt to close to other park users despite the packed parking lot.
It not too technical and there aren’t any surprising rock-gardens or jumps. However, some of the switchbacks are tight. Forcing one to brake hard and slow right down but the builders have done a great job of keep the flow.
You are likely to spot some wildlife too!
Take a few snacks to enjoy the great views.
