Where there was trackless veld a decade ago now lies an extensive network of singletrack trails. The trail-development process on the Mouton’s Valley, Pomona and Bugler’s Post farms was set in motion in 2009 after we hosted our first fundraising event and we continue to build today.

The 110-plus kilometre web of trails thread through mossy forests, striking rock formations and pristine fynbos. The riding is technically challenging, featuring berms, bridges, rocky climbs and steep descents. But the views – from the West Coast to Cederberg Mountain Rage, Rooi Karoo and even the iconic Table Mountain – are worth the grind. The trails are private, opened to the public for only one weekend of the year: The U. It is during this event where we strive to drive change in our community, putting all the proceeds into The Mouton’s Valley Star Centre.
