Temporary Permit


If you’re a once off visitor and want to ride any of the routes you need a temporary permit. Children under 12 years of age are free in the Rock Hopper Forest.

Temporary Permits are valid for 2 days and are designed for weekend visitors. You’ll probably only ride on one of the days but at least if you feel like going for a short spin on the other day you already have a permit!

Fees 2018: R40 (PPA members) R50 (non-PPA members)

There is a R30.00 refundable deposit for the Temporary Bike Boards.

NB2: If you are wanting to ride early on Saturday morning Vanilla Cafe is open on Friday evenings until 21:00 for you to purchase your permit.

Marshal Permit


A band of locals have MARSHAL boards instead of ANNUAL boards. This means that they are there to help with trail info (and puncture repair if you’re lucky!) and also to ensure that you’re displaying your bike board. We have a deal with private landowners and your bike board proves that you are legitimately there and automatically welcome!
