About Eureka City 4x4 Trail

Barberton is a very special town in the South African province of Mpumalanga. For centuries, it has been traversed by miners searching first for red ochre, and then for gold. So, while relatively small, it has always enjoyed a respected position on the map. It is within this heritage that rugged mountain faces and rocky gorges can be discovered and explored. This is optimally done from the comfort and excitement of a 4x4 vehicle.

The Eureka City 4x4 Trail is a 25 kilometre route that enjoys a grading of three. Drivers will be required to have a guide with them to conquer the route, which takes between five and six hours. Of course, this depends on the skills and abilities of the drivers as well as on the length of the rest stops.

Eureka City is a one-way route that comprises dirt tracks, rocks and farm roads. However, the challenge is in the steep, rocky descents and ascents, and in the very tight corners in some areas. Expect some heart-stopping moments that will make the course a very memorable one. Still, because there are not major obstacles or water crossings, this route is manageable by any vehicle that has superior ground clearance and suspension.

Drivers will be wont to look out for the fabulous geological formations and the lava flow, which is believed to be more than 3 700 million years old.

The 4x4 drivers and their teams are also invited to explore the beauty on the various mountain biking and quad biking trails for something a little different. There is also an array of accommodation options in the area, making the Eureka City 4x4 Trail an excellent option for those wanting to get the most out of their time in Barberton.
