Ekhutuleni Elevation

Trails – Some new Ekhutuleni trail

Distance: 32km
Ascent: +-250m
Difficulty: 8/10
Markers: Dark – Light Green arrows

This is the most exciting and technical of all the trails with a little bit of climbing thrown in.

The trail starts exactly along the same route as Rainbow/Khotso Clamber above but on getting to the tar road at +-10kms you keep to the left of the road and head up the hill toward some forest trails (recently cut down) that usher you on to some really exciting rocky cliff sections. This is one-of-a-kind exciting riding which will truly test your skills. Also make sure you have a head for heights because you will be riding right on the cliff edge. The elevated views are amazing and quite exhilarating – reminiscent of the Knysna Harkerville Trails (without the sea of course!) … but with more exciting riding!!

Some amazing fast switch-backs through a young pine forest usher you back down onto the fast flowing river trails that wend their way, via trails Intshitshi Spoor, Mzimkulu Run and Rainbow/Khotso Clamber above, back to the warm showers at the Olde Duck.
