Mountain biking in Jeffreys Bay

Jeffreys Bay offers exciting guided mountain biking for the young and the young at heart.

There are various routes you can explore from waterfall trips to game farms, giving you the opportunity to experience wild life up close and personal.

Misty Mountain Reserve

In the Tsitiskamma Forest, which is about 90kms from Jeffreys Bay, you can find the Misty Mountain Reserve which offers 4 very well marked trails that span across their grounds and link together trails in the South African National Parks Tsitsikamma indigenous forests with trails in the MTO Pine Plantations.

You can look forward to breathtaking sea views and forestry.

Longmore Forest Eastern MTB Route

The Longmore Forest Eastern MTB Route is situated on the R334 East of Jeffreys Bay towards Uitenhage. This route follows gravel roads, forestry roads and fire breaks in the pine plantation.

There are no flats in Longmore, so if you are looking for a more challenging off road trail, then the Longmore Forest Mountain biking trails are for you!

Trans Baviaans Mountain Bike Route

The Trans Baviaans Mountain Bike Route which is the Longest Single Day MTB Race in the World covering 225km of gravel. This route starts at Willowmore in the Karoo and ends in Jeffreys Bay.

This is a extremely punishing route with deep-seated downhills and awkward river crossings.

That being said, there is no better way to experience the Baviaans Kloof and the breathtaking citrus valley of Patensie.  Finishing in Jeffreys with its magnificent Bay will be the end to a testing but exhilarating biking experience.
