Hiking and mountain biking for both the serious and not so serious is a popular pass-time on Paardeplaats Nature Retreat
You have a choice of seven different routes totalling about 25 kilometres
The views on all the routes are absolutely spectacular!
Enjoy the explosion of sub-alpine flowers and plants in summer and the wonderful birding and small selection of game through all seasons.
No guides are needed and time is of no importance on your trail of exploration to a nearby derelict gold mine (10 – 15 minutes). Alternatively, you can follow the river to the top of the waterfall (20-30 minutes).
Pack a picnic basket for the longer hikes which are well suited for families. Don’t forget to bring binoculars and a birding book.!
Mountain biking is allowed on the Jafrie Ramble Route
