L 'Avenir - Nooitgedacht Trails

L 'Avenir - Nooitgedacht Trails


Family friendly mountain bike and run trail opens close to Stellenbosch.
Do you live in the Welgevonden or Nooitgedacht residential areas and love the outdoors?  You’ll be elated to know that you can now run and cycle on marked trails from your doorstep. The team from Dirtopia has developed a new trail on L’Avenir and Nooitgedacht Estates that even beginner mountain bikers can enjoy and is the perfect after-work training route .  

The hillier L’Avenir Loop is 4.4km while the flatter Nooitgedacht loop is 8km. Do both and you ride just over 12km or do the Nooitgedacht loop again to do a full 20km. Trail access is managed via a permit system using the Amarider Trailtag to give users access via the L’Avenir security gate. To obtain a permit, runners or riders can go to the two Dirtopia Trail Centres at Delvera or Stone Square at Welgevonden 7 days a week or buy one at the wine tasting centre at L’Avenir.  Permits cost R30 per person per day or R300 for an annual permit. The cost for under 18’s are R20 and R200 respectively.


Trail Routes available:
4.4km - L'Avenir Loop (Hillier route with more elevation)
8km - Nooitgedacht loop (Flatter area)
12km - L'Avenir Loop + Nooitgedacht Loop
20km - L'Avenir Loop + 2x Nooitgedacht Loop

Permits are available at:
1) Dirtopia Trail Centre - Delvera Wine Farm
2) Dirtopia Trail Centre - Stone Square, Welgevonden                                                                                                                            3) Online at dirtpass.co.za
4) L'Avenir Wine Tasting Centre

The trail is currently open from 07h00 to 18h00 and there is a map available when you buy your permit.  L’Avenir also has a Lodge if you’d like to visit for the weekend!
