Sappi’s wide-spread plantations, coupled with the vision and dedication of passionate local mountain biking enthusiasts, have resulted in a world-class trail network which is now accessible to recreational riders year round.

All routes start and finish at the Karkloof Country Club where additional facilities include safe parking and hot showers – everything you need to enjoy a great mountain biking experience! There are plans to introduce a coffee shop and restaurant which will be open Friday night, Saturday breakfast/lunch/supper and Sunday breakfast/lunch.

In an effort to make the area safer and more enjoyable for recreational riders, the Karkloof Mountain Biking Club has implemented the International Mountain Biking Association trail-grading standards across the entire trail network. There are marked and mapped routes ranging from a very easy 10 kilometres and an easy 20 kilometres to a moderately challenging 30-kilometre route.

Once riders become more familiar with the trails, they are then also able to connect to other sections, referred to as outback trails, which do not form part of the marked and regularly maintained trails, but allow riders to create longer routes and enjoy more variety.

Karkloof – The race for the overall line honours at the Sappi Karkloof Classic Trail Festival 60 km marathon ended in a thrilling sprint finish with Under 23 ace Julian Jessop bouncing back from a series of crashes to outwit Stuart Marais on the finish line.Jessop and Marais raced the entire race together with Pieter du Toit, and the crowd enjoying the 25th anniversary celebrations of this pioneering event were treated to a grand stand finish to the blue ribbon race.It was an emotional win by Jessop, whose racing career started at the same venue when was a nervous youngster."I did my first race here when I was nine years old," The Pyga/Euro Steel star recalled. "I was crying on the start line of the 10 km race becuase I was too scared to do it."Then my younger brother took off, and I thought 'There is now way I can let him beat me', and off I went, so I actually dedicate this win to him.
