Sappi’s wide-spread plantations, coupled with the vision and dedication of passionate local mountain biking enthusiasts, have resulted in a world-class trail network that is now accessible to recreational riders year-round.
Additional facilities include: safe parking, hot showers, a place to wash your bike , as well access to the Café and Bar. Everything you need to enjoy a great mountain biking experience is at your fingertips.
There are eight marked routes: 5km, 15km, 20km, 23km, 30km, 37km, 42km and 55km. All routes begin and end at the Karkloof Country Club and are graded according to International Mountain Biking Association trail-grading standards. These routes are well marked and you can find all the trail information on the Routes & Maps page, as well as at the club.
There are many more kilometers of forest roads and single track. Once you become familiar with the trails you can explore the other trails to create longer and even more enjoyable routes. The outback trails are as they sound, irregularly maintained and unmarked, but for avid bikers, they are what makes Karkloof exhilarating.
