Hazeldean Valley Trails
Follow us on Facebook.
The Hazeldean Valley Mountain Biking and Trail Running Trails are ideally situated right on the doorstep Pretoria East, riding distance from Silverlakes and surrounds. Come and enjoy some fresh air and exercise in the bushveld followed by well-earned, delicious food and drink at the Cowhouse on weekends.
Rental bikes are available for R150, including a helmet, for use on the trails.
Ecologic provide soap so that we can wash your bike while you relax at the Cowhouse. R40 for a bike wash or R20 for just a spray down without soap.
On week days we have a tuckshop selling cold drinks, Gegrond Cold Brewed Coffee, Biogen Electolite Sports drink ideal for recovery, as well as healthy home made snacks from Marguerite Twopointzero (such as super food protein balls and bars) as well as nut butters and fruit.
The trails are well designed such that everyone can enjoy them from beginners to pros. There are up to 50 km of well-designed single track to be enjoyed.
There are dedicated trail running routes too which are lovely to hike as well. Feel Free to come and walk your dog here. The Cowhouse is a dog friendly venue as long as your dog is on a leash and is well behaved.
Trails are open 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset. Parking is at the Cowhouse from 6 AM to 6 PM (summer) or 6:30 AM to 5:30 PM (winter) from where you can follow the coloured arrows to the trails.

Apart from regular riding and running on the trails, there are also a variety of events throughout the year: mountain bike races, trail runs, duathlons, night rides, beer miles and more. Visit bouttime.co.za to enter the events.
We endeavour to keep the trails open 365 days a year. If we need to close them due to a clash with a big mountain bike race or due to the trails being too muddy to ride, this will be communicated on our Facebook page. We have so much space that events like trail runs and duathlons will not interfere significantly with the mountain bike trails.
