The road is gravel and has a few good steady hills to work the legs. Good training ride for those looking for a steady time in the saddle workout. Ride past the fences of Munyawana Game Reserve with the possibility of seeing game species along the way. Can be done as an early return ride for breakfast at the Fig Tree Cafe or stop at Baobab for breakfast and ride back to Fig Tree Cafe for coffee and a shower.

Access Info

Park you car at secure parking at Trail head of the Fig Tree Cafe at Illala Weavers.
