• Welcome to Hennops MTB

About Us

Hennops MTB Trail’s unique features are the Hennops river flowing through a valley bordered by mountain ranges to the north and the south. This gives our 90% single track purpose built mountain bike trail a variety of terrain, some steep climbs and descents, lots of natural obstacles and great views to enjoy.

    We have 3 trails:
  • River (5km) Easy
  • Green trail (18km) Elevation gain 307m (River, Safari, Snake, Kayalami and Home run sections)
  • Green + Blue trails (26km) Elevation gain 472m (all green sections + skeleton)
  • You also have a short cut option after each section to make up your own distance.
  • Beginner riders: Take the “Short Cut” at Safari and Snake and try the Kayalami section, complete with the Home Run back home. This will be 14km’s. Or take all “Short Cut” options to ride only 10km.

River Loop (5km)

The first section ‘River’ is suitable for children and beginner riders. Surrounded by the river and trees this beautiful flat section offers a 30m suspension bridge, berms, swirls and turns, a few ups and downs and fast flowing flat bits. The River section forms the beginning and end of the Green trail.

Green trail (18km)

  • River (5km / Elevation gain 10m)
  • Safari (4.5 km / Elevation gain 100m)

Safari goes through the game fenced 4×4 park. Some steady climbs and downhill single track to negotiate whilst you can keep an eye out for Zebra, Impala, Gnu, and Kudu. In this section the MTB trail crosses the hiking and 4×4 trails on a few occasions

  • Snake (3.5km/ Elevation gain 54m)

This is a twisting mountain single track with many switchbacks. Come test your technical skills here, but be careful as the name suggests the Snake can bite!

  • Kayalami (3.7km / Elevation gain 28m)

Kayalami is a flat, super smooth flowing single track with long and short corners to test your flat terrain riding.

Home Run takes you back tot the home leg of River and back to Hadeda camp. This is a fast downhill track.
