35 km MTB

Starting at Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve, riders will thump their way up to Everdon Estate (closed to public, the Howick Highlander provides the only opportunity to ride in this beautiful estate), to be rewarded for their effort with a dramatic views across the Karkloof Falls Valley and Albert Falls. Take your time here, it’s not a race, enjoy the view and catch up with friends old and new.


Refuelled, you will attack the avos’ and descend to Umgeni Valley.  Not for the faint-hearted (you are welcome to take the chicken-run and head back along the main road), the 35km route snakes along the edge of the escarpment along the Dwarfs Dawdle and Black Eagle hiking trails – epic! 


After a very short portage section up a flight of steps, our generous sponsors will be ready to replace those spent kilojoules for the last, easy-going, section home.  View Route.
