Mountain Bike Routes
Bottelary Hills MTB Trails were opened by the Bottelary Hills Conservancy in April 2011 and allow controlled access to the conservancy via dedicated, well-marked routes. The rolling hillsides feature vineyards, farmland, conservation areas and trails comprised of farm roads, jeep tracks and numerous singletracks. While never too technical there are challenging climbs and a variety of distances on offer for riders of all fitness levels. A Mediterranean climate prevails providing cold wet winters and hot dry summers.
