Every one of the trails has been carved to perfection and incorporates a host of features including jeep track, single track, floating bridges, forest trails, fast winding descents and a couple of heart pumping hills.
The venue hosts some spectacular scenery and game viewing. There is a restaurant and service bar for drinks and eats after the ride.
There are 3 routes. Green can do the Blue route and maybe a bit of the Yellow route. Yellow will do the Blue and Yellow route to total 31km. Red and Blue can do all 3 routes if so inclined to total 46km, or do a bit of the Blue route and the whole Yellow and Red routes.
Routes are as follows: Blue for Easy to Intermediate and totals 12.5km.This is the base trail as all the trails start on Blue. This route stays close to the base and make for an easy hop back to the venue. It has ups, downs, switch-backs, water features and even a bit of river frontage. Yellow for Intermediate riders and totals 18.5km. Yellow takes you to the South Western side of the complex. Get onto the Blue route and it splits to Yellow, travelling West alongside the lake. Plenty of trees line the way with winding single track through 8 forest sections. Some of the descents are hairy so be careful. Red is for the advanced rider and totals 15km. Red ends up travelling to the Northern side of the complex as it covers the high lying territories. Get onto the Blue route and follow it until it splits to Red, just before the river crossing below the dam wall. You’ll join the Blue route on the way home
