The Paardenberg Trails for mountain biking, trail running and hiking have been designed with variety, fun and challenges in mind. Our routes traverse farms, weave across rivers, through forests, along single tracks and gravel roads, and climb steep ascents. The seasoned mountain biker or trail runner can test themselves on the more technical routes, whilst others can have a more leisurely time with the family along the shorter routes.
