Hennops Offroad Trails – Elandsfontein

Hennops Offroad Trails is a centre catering for mountain bikers, hikers and 4×4 enthusiasts located only 50 km north of Johannesburg. The mountain bike trail starts at their Hadeda camp situated on the banks of the Hennops river, where you will also find families picnicking and camping. The first section of the track follows farm roads on a working cattle farm. The second section follows jeep tracks and is more challenging. In this section there are a few dongas where riders can have some fun crossing obstacles of various difficulties. The final section runs through grass fields and finishes with single-track next to the river.

Oi!! Keep your weight on  your rear wheel through the technical section.
