We signed up for the brown, 8.7km trail walk. Unfortunately we got terribly lost as we followed the "house sign" & not the "running man sign". As we enjoyed the besutiful scenary the view, the nature & the quiteness among the sugarcane plantages we realized after a bit more thsn 10km that we would not make it back to base camp before the heavy rain would start. Called the camp & they sent someone to pick us up & bring us back. Very great day. Pleasant experience.

The best spot for some trail runs/walks or cycling on the North Coast. Save parking, cool restaurant and great scenery. Totally chilled vibe!!!

It was the first time myself and my wife went on a bike trail ride. We where both unsure off what to expect but @HollaTrails was Amazing. Shortest Route is 16km which we thought was a strech for us. But the route is so Beautiful that we sometimes forgot how far we still need to go. I definitely recommend @HollaTrails to anyone.

My experience was not as positive as others here. I cycle quite a lot but due to shortage of time decided to do the non short cut Green route, about 18km. I found the route marking to be very poor indeed and on several occasions i needed to double back. At several places the red and green trails were together at other points there was just a red marker so it was never clear if you should follow the red or it was the point at which the trail split. I know they have just re routed the green route so maybe this was the cause?

Lucky I had set Strava at the start of the ride so just used that to navigate back to the bike shop.

A disappointing experience form my perspective.

Good day Gordon, Sorry about your poor experience. We put a lot of effort in our markings but it can occasionally happen that a marker gets knocked down. We try to check our routes as often as possible but we cannot ride every route every day, that is why we appreciate the feedback from the riders and runners so much. I would like to offer a complentary ride for your next visit a trust you will have better experience. Kind regards, Jasper van Vessem

We do the park run every week so are frequent visitors. The run is off road so safe and has medical backup.

We were visiting the north coast on holiday and saw this MTB place and thought we had to give it a go. Very impressed easy to hire bikes and get out on the trails, which were well maintained. I think we did the maroon trail which took us about 2.5 hours at a fairly leisurely pace. Food afterwards in the cafe was delicious.

Very impressed by the trail up keep and variety of trail length offered.
Reasonable amount of climbing and not very technical.
Trails well marked!
Would avoid after heavy showers as the ground would be very soft!
Amazing views from the top of the hills!
