Kloof Route

Grading: 4/5
This trail is only 1 km long, but it takes one vehicle about an hour to complete. A variety of difficult obstacles such as rocky ledges will be encountered. One of which, the Wall, presents an exceptional challenge, even to experienced drivers. The Wall can, however, be avoided.

This trail is suitable for experienced drivers with serious 4x4's. Low range and very good ground clearance are definitely required. Diff locks are recommended. It is also strongly recommended that this trail be reconnoitred on foot before venturing upon it with a vehicle. During the journey somebody should accompany the vehicle on foot to 'talk' the driver through the trail.

Rooiberg Route

Grading:2
This is a short trail of only 7km (2 hours). The turning point of this trail is on the highest peak of the Rooiberg Mountain range. It is a wonderful view point.

As a result of the mountainous terrain, the same route is used for the ascent and descent. The trail is fairly steep in places but the surface is reasonably good when dry.

Sandberg Route

Grading: The "Gat": 4. The remainder: 2
The full distance of this trail is 17km (3 hours). The trail ascends Sandberg Mountain on top of which is a big plateau, from where one can see many a kilometre.

Two different routes are used for the ascent and descent of Sandberg Mountain. Both trails are rather steep and rough in places. Low-range is not essential. The trail on top of the plateau is predominantly level.

Steenbokrant Route

Grading: 3
This short trail of just 4,5 km (1 hour) is a circle route. The trail crosses several dry watercourses, at least one of which requires special care. You will also encounter a steep ascent and rocky ridges. Some experience and a vehicle with good ground clearance are essential. Low-range is strongly recommended.
