This mountain bike trail in the Commando Drift Nature Reserve is easy if hilly at points, but not overly challenging. The route can either be circular or you can take a number of alternative routes back to the start point. The trail should take around 4 hours to complete.

The area is quite rocky, there is plenty of acacia here and a good number of devil thorns along the way, so be prepared before setting off.

The mountain backdrop sets the scene and you are very likely to come across quite a bit of wildlife on route. Wildlife you may see are mountain zebra, red hartebeest, kudu, black wildebeest and reedbuck as well as a number of smaller creatures.

A permit is required for this route and is obtainable from the Commando Drift Nature Reserve Office.
