Start this trail at the Trail entrance, follow the red arrows into the forest. Take the red split left over the log ride bridge, follow red arrows up a good forest climb, passing the Boer War graves and through the gap in the old stone wall. This is followed by some fast flowing trail through the forest to join up with the Forest blue loop until just past the lookout point where the trails split. As you exit the next forest you cross a cattle bridge and follow single track through the grassland with some amazing views of the Elandsvalley. You then climb steeply up to the top of the koppie with a 360degree view of the countryside. A fast drop through the old quarry will see you back in the forest heading towards some of the steep descents with a few drop-offs and some fun berms. A great fast trail back to the farm gate.
