Start at Tokai forest and make your way up Ou Kaapse Weg. The Silvermine loop starts at the mountain bike parking lot at Silvermine Dam. Its primarily a jeep track loop that circumnavigates the dam providing stunning views of the dam and ocean from virtually the whole route. It is unidirectional and the first few km are a character building uphill until the high point and the best views are reached. From here the descent back past the dam can be a loose and scary affair with a lack of grip in the corners and a smattering of hikers and dogs creating extra obstacles to consider. All in this is a great scenic route with climbing that will boost your fitness levels. This is a marathon riders dream route!

A lot of work has gone into this trail recently - great improvement. Watch for some overhanging vegetation . Some corners are rutted but doable. Six horses went down the trail recently so the lower sections are a bit uneven. New jump 2/3 down very doable - landing is clear. On the whole running nicely - enjoy this one.
