The Porcupine Trail....offers trail riders over 6km of challenging singletrack trails. This blue intermediate route is roughly 15km long and takes riders up the slopes of the Klapmuts Hill and into the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy. This is one of the Cape's premier singletrack destinations. Built and maintained by the same crew that is responsible for the Tokai, Lebanon, Thandi & Jonkershoek trails. Another 3km black trail option for advanced riders.

The more sedate Farm Trail is 7km and perfect for beginners. Enough climbing for a rewarding view. This route follows the Green signs.
