Klipspringer Mountain Bike Trail
Enjoy the beauty of the Overberg
Only two hours from Cape Town, come and experience some awesome mountain biking on our custom built trails, which starts and finish at Lomond Wine Farm or Flower Valley. The 30 km circular Klipspringer route takes riders through the Lomond vineyards and then up through magnificent fynbos on Farm 215 Eco-Estate. The climb is tough, but the views at the top are worth the effort. If you take time for a breather you can look out over the Lomond vineyards across to the coast and distant Dyer Island. The climb is followed by a fast downhill on a rough jeep track with some fun sharp bends to keep you alert. After crossing the dam wall at Koudeberg there is more downhill thrills through Goedvertrouw and along the Uilkraals River to the gravel road. After a short section of gravel road the route heads up a steep climb onto Witvoetskloof. This is a real oxygen sucker and you will do well to reach the top without pushing. The route then heads to a trig beacon on Witvoetskloof with 360 panoramic views across the Lomond Dam and surrounding fynbos. After some fun riding along old flower picking roads the route reaches Fynbos Retreat and then on over the ridge and down a steep descent into Flower Valley. The ride can be started and ended at Flower Valley or a little further along the route at Lomond Tasting room.The total distance is 31km and includes 1129m of climbing. Over the next few months we will be opening new routes including a shorter, family friendly trail.
