Hermanus Cycle Route
This circular trail is signposted for clockwise travel and may be joined at any point within the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. The surface is mainly jeep track, but a few substantial stretches of singletrack add to the attraction of the route.
Expect a few sandy sections and rocky stretches here and there as well as the occasional tarmac link. In places, the trail skirts the urban sprawl of Hermanus but for most of your ride you’ll be blasting through a profusion of fynbos alive with butterflies, birds, baboons, mongoose, frogs, tortoises, snakes and lizards.
