Trusted Mountain Bike Trail Thursdays: Rosemary Hill

Rosemary Hill is a working organic farm. The family that runs this land has farmed for almost 35 years, have planted over 30 000 trees and shrubs, and currently grow African Potato, Sutherlandia, Rosemary, Lavender, Artemisia, Lippia, Spearmint, Eucalyptus and various other plants from which they distil essential oils. Other crops include Pecan nuts and vegetables and the vast nursery sells all of this as well as a variety of these shrubs, flowers, herbs and trees.

The trails vary in difficulty, becoming more complex as they increase in distance. You experience the most amazing smells of Lavender and Rosemary as you cycle so we recommend you cycle for as long as possible. The trails are fairly flat and fast with some bridges and tight single track sections. There are some sharp drop-offs, steep hills and then of course the legendary floating bridge but if you are not feeling very cocky, there is a chicken run option just for you.
