There is a multitude of route options that can be chosen in this area, but this route takes you along the main gravel road loop, and then up the mountain side for some serious climbing, and then down one of it's slopes that could just as well have been in the alps! Steep, twisty, Fast!

Tokai Forest
The Tokai Forest offers the best and most popular mountain-biking on the Peninsula, with good climbing and downhill, a network of forestry roads and jeep track, and an extensive network of singletrack. Another bonus is the shade cover and, to a certain extent, wind protection afforded by the pines. With about 500 mountain bikers accessing the forest each weekend, it’s a good place to meet other riders.

The Tokai Forest Arboretum is a national monument with a variety of tree species. Since 1993 a section of the upper forest has been made available to mountain-bikers, with spectacular Tokai Forest mountain biking trails. We cycle the trails of the Constantia berg Mountains with stunning views across the Southern Suburbs to The Hottentots Holland Mountains and beyond.
