Come and enjoy the new ‘Potter’s Trail’
on the 1st Bench Route
Recently added trails to the Greyton network
the “Real+Simple” climb to 1st Bench
If you’ve never been able to ride the technical jeep track climb to 1st Bench - this new trail is for you. Built for a beginner to intermediate rider, we’ve stretched out the ascent via the hidden valley. By incorporating a series of flat turn switchbacks and swoop type steps, we’ve made the 52 meter ascent easier and a lot more fun.
Join us on the Sunday the 16th December for the inaugural ride!
Please remember to renew your GGMTB Annual Trail Permit for 2019
Annual Permits Valid from 1st January 2019 to 31st December 2019
NEW MAPS, NEW ROUTES, NEW SIGNAGE!
NEW ROUTE MAPS
The guys from Table Mountain bikers have redesigned our new maps. We’ve used this opportunity to improve the flow of our existing trails, and to incorporate some new stuff.
NEW ROUTES 2019
The Old Potter’s Trail and the Real+Simple Climb, both found on the 1st Bench Loop. The Old Potter’s Trail starts to the right of the exit point of the Bone Doctor. This beginner to intermediate trail is a great way to develop your MTB skills whilst enjoying an incredible journey through the Greyton wilderness. On it’s exit, the Old Potter’s trail has two options, to continue left and complete the 1st Bench loop via the new Real+Simple Climb or continue straight and link with the new Sandpit for an easier trail home.
NEW ROUTES 2018
The Bone Doctor descent and The R.I.P descent - both to be found on the Bench To Bench route. The Bone Doctor replaces the old Bone Shaker on the 1st Bench Route and the R.I.P replaces the old Slice on the 2nd Bench Route. Both new trails offering a longer sweeping descent with berms and switchbacks.
Look out for the new and funky little arrows indicating two green routes, one through the forest and another continuing through the Sandpit with its new additions and around Greyton finishing along the Gobos river. Two light blue routes also known as Bench to Bench, 1st Bench on the east side of the village, features our latest trail builds - The Old Potters Trail and the Real+Simple Climb. Both 1st Bench and 2nd Bench offer scenic trails with stunning views over Greyton. The dark blue ‘Wreck Route’ is longer but without the serious hills you’d find on the reds. The ‘Luislang route’ (red) is a short circuit with a great jeep track climb and way better meandering downhill for a quick adrenalin spike. The Bakenskop red route requires a bit more work and time but includes a legend switchback single track climb to a high point not just for the view!
The Genadendal loop, also a light Blue arrow - starts and finishes at the historic Church Square in Genadendal.

Fun for all
The mountain biking options in and around Greyton and Genadendal have increased dramatically in the last year thanks to a small band of enthusiasts who have built, cleared and marked many kilometres of track.
Greyton and Genadendal are wonderful places for a mountain biking weekend: There are several routes to ride; stunning scenery; a range of accommodation to choose from and those who are not so energetic always find plenty to do in our beautiful village.
There are several enthusiastic mountain bikers who are always keen to share their local knowledge of the trails, and for those training and wanting to ride distance, there are many district roads that are safe and scenic. If you want to go for a doddle with the kids check out the Rockhopper Forest and the Sandpit for real fun riding without the hills!
Several farms allow riding on their tracks by prior arrangement and some major cycling events take place each year in the area, the Greyt Escape MTB, The Greyton Tour, The Pie Run Gravel Grinder and Brew run. Check out the events pages!
Our trails are designed with Everyone in mind! Ride though the Rockhopper forest with your kids or ride the red loop to train for the Epic! And of course there’s a whole lot of options in between... click on the map for more
