A taste of Karkloof

📍Howick, KZN

We’ve been eager to ride Karkloof for the longest time and finally we got a tantalising taste! A gentle 25km adventure, it didn’t disappoint and we’ll definitely be back for more.

🥳 Fun factor: riding through Karkloof will take your emotions on the best kind of joy ride – you’ll feel awe, gratitude, joy & peace. All of it in full healing dose! Highlight reel to follow in stories.

🏋🏾‍♀️ Fitness level required: with such a wide variety of trail and jeep track, this is every mountain biker & trail runners delight. Whether you’re a novice, intermediate or racing snake rider, you’ll be charmed by what you find here.

👧🏽 Suitability for kids: Yes – push bikes and all!

💸 Costs: R80 adult day pass; R30 seniors and juniors day pass; free for under 6yo. Annual memberships also available.

🤩 What we loved most:
– The spectacular scenery is what takes you on the emotional joy ride we described, and you will radiate joy for rest of your day. To quote one of the riders today: “if this isn’t medicine then I don’t know that is.” Preach, sister!
– The single track is everything. It’s well built and flows beautifully, taking you through mesmerising forest and past full fast flowing rivers. What a thrill!

🚦What you need to know: don’t think you’ll only go once. It might be something they put in the water 😉, but it’s definitely the kind of place that warrants a repeat visit.

In short: other than the soul stirring scenery, we love the variety of distance, terrain and complexity available at karkloof which accommodates every level of rider. Bring your friends & family – we’re definitely coming back for more.
