The existing Delvera trails will be incorporated into the Simonsberg system which means that riders, trail runners and hikers can now access all the trails with a single annual pass. The new Simonsberg routes is a joint initiative between Dirtopia and local landowners, with the Simonsberg Conservancy being the main beneficiary of all permits sales.

The Trail Centre is your one stop shop for trail & event info, basic supplies, GIANT bike sales & rentals. Fully operational Bike workshop too.


Since 1998, Dirtopia has been a key driver of the MTB industry through events, trail construction and profiling the sport. The Welgevonden Trail Centre continues this drive and is sure to enhance the fantastic Stellenbosch mountain bike trail opportunities even further.
