Four By Four Trails
Clocolan (50.1 km from Maseru)
Groenkloof 4x4 is in a valley at the foot of Viervoetberg, in the Eastern Free State. The farm offers tracks for quad bikes, mountain bikes and 4x4s. The tracks cross each other but are clearly marked so that nobody gets lost. The 4x4 trail is set along a sandstone cliff and heads to the top of a plateau. The trail splits at the top of the plateau. The trail grading is 2 to 3. You will be asked to deflate your tyres to 1.5 bar and so it is recommended that you bring your compressor along. The trail is 21 km long and takes about 4.5 hours to complete. If you like bass fishing, take your rod along! Please call for further information as the exact GPS coordinates are unknown. A fee is charged.
