West Coast National Park Cycle and MTB Trails

Cycle Trails in the West Coast National Park

Enjoy the scents of the fynbos and wild flowers and the views of the lagoon from the top of Seeberg. All routes start from the Langebaan Gate. All cyclists are expected to pay normal conservation fees at the gate or buy a wild card.

Cycle routes:

Langebaan gate – Geelbek & return 30km on tarred road OR Langebaan gate – Kraalbaai & return 70km on tarred road.

Mountain bike routes:

The Green trail (follow Green signs) starts at the Langebaan gate and turns right off the tar down on the old Bottelary dirt road (lift your bike over the chain) and joins up with the original old “white road” where you will turn right. Turning left here is not permitted as there is a bush reclamation project underway there. This brings you back out at the Seeberg Bird Hide and it’s an easy ride back to the gate. This trail should take you about an hour to ride (13 km).

The Red trail (follow Red signs) uses a similar route, but has two deviations. The first is to turn off to the right up the steep Seeberg lookout road to the top, after which you rejoin the tar road at the same place and continue towards Geelbek. The second is to then turn left at Mooimaak and follow the Red trail signs around Mooimaak and down along a circular route back to the tar road where you would turn left for a short ride to the Bottelary turnoff as indicated on the Green trail. This one should take you just over an hour and a half to get back to the gate (17km). No helmet – no ride.

See a cycling route Map of the West Coast National Park.

For an extended 10 km ride park in Langebaan town at the beach and ride to the park gate for the start of the trail. For more information, visit the SanParks Website.
