Franschhoek Wine Valley


Mountain Biking on Boschendal

Boschendal proudly hosted the Cape Epic 2016 for 2 days and we have recently opened the new Boschendal MTB Trails to the riding public. With single track by Bennett Nel and Pieter van Wyk expect some sweet riding. The world class black route is proving to be a hit with intermediate to advanced riders, but we do have routes to suit families and casual riders.

Trails: 3 marked trail circuits starting near the Orchard Cottages on Boschendal. 7km Blue Route; 10km Red Route; 18km Black Route. Add 5km if starting from the Boschendal Werf parking area.

Parking:Riders are encouraged to park at the main parking area at Boschendal Werf. From here it is a gentle 2,5km warm up ride to the trail start. Limited parking is available at the start of the marked circuits for those riding with young families.

Daily rate: R50 per rider per day

Annual rate: R500 for 1 / R800 for a couple / R1000 for a family. Permits valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Please bring an ID photo when applying for an annual permit. An annual permit will take 1 week to process but riders can ride for free on the day they apply and pay for an annual permit.

Permits & maps: Permits are available from the Boschendal Farmshop & Deli. 100% of the permit fee goes towards building and maintaining trails. Please note that permits will be checked by security at Rhodes Avenue gate. No permit no ride.

Opening hours: Open 365 days a year during daylight hours only. Day permits available from 8am Monday to Sunday.

Family friendly: Family friendly facilities and things to do at the Boschendal werf for those not riding. Things to do after your ride: Have breakfast at the Deli, enjoy a long lunch at the Deli or Werf Restaurant, have a picnic on the lawns, enjoy wine tasting under the oaks, swop your iron steed for a horse or pony ride, visit the natural meat Werf Butchery, check out the vast gardens, and stock up on some fresh farm produce at the Farmshop & Deli

Amenities: Shower facilities and secure parking available.
