      Over 100km of mainly single track trails extending across 30 private properties. The trails have been developed by
      Erik Schipper from Van Gaalens cheese farm.

      The trails are shared between horse riders, hikers, birders, mountain bikers and trails runners. Entry requires a day permit and signing an indemnity form at Van Gaalen's farm. The trails are normally open from 6h00 in summer during the weekends and 7h00 in winter. Access may be limited or closed when there are events taking place.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
