      Bottelary Hills MTB Trails were opened by the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy (BHRC) in April 2011. The trails formalise riding in the area and serve as a much needed source of funds to further conservation efforts.

      BHRC encloses the Bottelary Hills situated near Stellenbosch, approximately 40km East of Cape Town, South Africa. The hills are home to endangered fauna and flora species.
