Riverside 4×4 Trail, Steynsrus, Free State

Free State Riverside TrailIf you’re looking for a great day of fun, Riverside 4×4 won’t disappoint.

The grading might be a little misleading, though. While it’s novice friendly, the overlapping circular route will test you and your vehicle through sand, mud, water, over rocks, up steep inclines, down sharp descents and across some serious cross-axle cambers. It may even test your recovery skills.

With all that to get through, make sure you have time to park off for lunch among the willows..

The way there:  Riverside 4×4 is about 20 km from Steynsrus on the R76 towards Lindley.

Accommodation: Riverside 4×4 offers rustic accommodation on the banks of the Vaal River in an old sandstone shed (sleeps 20, from R70 a person a night) and in the Ou Huis (sleeps 17, from R100 a person a night).
