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 Market.
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 now. For longer rides you can continue on to Rosemary Hill which is riding distance away.
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 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.
In order to maintain and improve the trails we rely on income from your tickets. We request that you honour this system and do not try to enter the park without a pass. Tickets can be purchased at our tickets office in the Cowhouse Market on weekends or at Bruce Reyneke Cycles in Shere on week days or use Snapscan at the gate.

When you just want to sit down and enjoy your drink in front of the band at the Cowhouse Market, what better place for your little ones to burn some energy than the Kiddies Bike Park at Hazeldean Valley. There are two entrance gates from the Cowhouse Market: one next to the stage and one next to the kiddies play area. The park is fenced off so you don’t need to worry that your little one will wander off and get lost. Entrance is free and there is no age restriction although more advanced riders would prefer to go on the Hazeldean Valley Trails longer mountain bike routes.
Shoes are recommended as there are some thorns. Helmets are also recommended for safety. Side wheels are not recommended as they can get stuck on the bank next to the path.
If you want to try to break the record for the fastest lap find Assie at the Hazeldean Valley Trails ticket office in the Cowhouse Market and he will time you.
Inside the kiddies bike park is some seating for moms who prefer to keep a closer eye. This seating is free for all: first come first served.
If bikes is not their thing then there is a bright orange tractor play on.
If you would like to have a kiddies party or any other function here you can book the kiddies bike park for a small fee. Feel free to contact us.

Hazeldean Brewing Co. has been in the pipeline for quite some time. The Company was founded in 2013 but as with many good brews - things take time. It's with great pleasure that I can introduce to you a brewery that is passionate about "local" and "craft" with beers that are distinctly unique!
