THE EXPERIENCE : MTB TRAIL
The ‘Klipspringer’ mountain bike trail runs through the reserve of farm 215. The trail is a 30km circular route traversing five private properties within the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy. The route can be started either from Lomond Wine Farms tasting room facility or from the Flower Valley Farm, but guest of farm 215 can of course start from the guesthouse. A day permit costs R40 and is acquired through an honesty box system at the two starting points and guests can buy their permit at farm 215. The ride includes some jeep track, some single track and quiet farm roads; it is quite challenging and is classified as a black route on the basis of its terrain and difficulty. The route has been cut by local unemployed youth through funding from the Conservancy, Overstrand Municipality and Extended Public Works Program. For mountain bikers looking for some challenging routes in the Overberg, this is going to be a great way to explore our beautiful fynbos-clad mountains.
