Description:

This reserve on the edge of the Howick Falls is a true gem, rarely explored but breathtakingly scenic! Single track hugging the edge of the valley with thick bushveld, aloes and game as spectators.

The Long Course will explore the clifftops and valley bottoms of the reserve, while the Medium Course traverses the popular Black Eagle Trail. The Short Course is not without its challenges, taking participants into the upper reaches of an uMngeni tributary.
