Alley Cat is a great singletrack trail, typical of what one finds at Farm Windhoek and very similar to other trails in this area. It runs from the River Crossings JT back down to the main Jeep Track. It is best ridden downhill (South to North) from the top back down towards the Waldorf area. While the trail surface is generally smooth with solid hard pack, there are intermittent rocky sections with some loose over hard and gravel in places. Alley Cat is not a very technical trail, but with speed your skills will be challenged. There are no significant technical trail features or obstacles on the trail.

Access Info

Alley Cat can be accessed from the lower end of River Crossings JT. To get there go up Volts.
