The farm boasts with five MTB trails undulating through Karoo bushland, kloofs and mountains. More than 90% of the trails are single-track whereof 60km are purpose-built and designed by Lex Holmes.

Blue Route: Takes you 23 km through some slightly more challenging terrain.
Red Route: 38 km long, covers all the more challenging sections as well as visiting all the scenic portions of the farm.
