Mountain Biking on Boschendal

Boschendal is one of the proud hosts of the Cape Epic and we have recently opened the Boschendal Trail Centre to the riding public. Expect some sweet singletrack riding. The world-class black route is proving to be a hit with intermediate to advanced riders, but we do have routes to suit families and casual riders.

The downhill singletrack includes Inferno (3.7 km), Sugar Bowl (2.3km), and Porcupine (1.3km). The 1km Orchards skills track with its sweeping berms, camelbacks, tabletops and gap jumps has both beginner and advanced options.

Trails: Our marked trail circuits starting just inside the Rhodes Avenue security gate. 4km Yellow Route; 9km Green Route; 11km Blue Route; 15km Red Route; 23km Black Route. The Black XL route adds 3-4 sections onto Black route.

Parking: Riders can park at the main parking area at Boschendal Werf. From here you can buy your permits at the Boschendal Trail Centre, located next to The Tree House Pump Track.

Permits & maps: Permits are available from the Boschendal Trail Centre. 100% of the permit fee goes towards building and maintaining our trails. Please note that permits will be checked by security at Rhodes Avenue gate. No permit no ride.

Rates: MTB Trail Day Permit - R 50 | Pump Track – R25 | Guided Bike Tour 1 Hour - R 400

Annual rate: R500 for 1 | R800 for a couple | R1000 for a family. Permits valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Please bring an ID photo when applying for an annual permit.
