SP1 Tofana is a challenging gravity fed trail that starts in the Northwest corner of Belvedere Ranch. The trail is steep in places and makes excellent use of the natural features in the Zulu Kingdom landscape. Add a bit of speed, and a bit of daredevil attitude, and it quickly becomes a double black diamond However, at slower speeds the trail can be enjoyed by good intermediate riders and all technical trail features have B-lines. The trail joins the Giraffe Trail from where it is a smooth ride out.

Access Info

SP1 Tofana starts in the Northwest corner of Belvedere Ranch at the end of the Northwest Service Road. To get there you can either follow the Northwest Service Road from the Preekstoel Junction, or you can ride up, past the Preekstoel Viewpoint and onto the top end of SP2 Preekstoel Gravity, and then join the Northwest Service Road from above.
