This is a medium length but challenging ride with some very amazing views from Robben Island to Hangklip that make the climbs worthwhile. The single track is flowing and fast in sections which makes for a very enjoyable roller-coaster ride!

The trail is 7km long and 250m climbing. The trails are well marked and the signs are easy to see and follow. The green route was designed by Meurant Botha and is a preferred choice for Western Province XC races. The trail is testing rather than technical and includes some atmospheric climbs up and thrilling descents. Newbies can expect to hone their switchback and balancing skills here.
