Howick Mountain Biking
Step out of our entrance gate and you`re on the trail! No driving to the start of the trail!
Tucked away in a dip less than a stones throw from the busy N3 in the Natal Midlands lies the little town of Howick. It is all hustle bustle but unassuming, old school and filed with farm vehicles and people. Over the rise in the bordering Sappi forests lies the secret network of some of the most awesome single track that you will find in SA. Laid out in the form of a fan from the highest point in the area is a selection of singletrack from smooth flowing forest lanes to gnarly rock gardens that will make you clinch or break your teeth depending on your skill level.
The Howick trail system has been setup and controlled by the Howick Mountain Bike club. This mountain bikers paradise is not well known, not because it is hidden but rather due to its low key nature.
Howick Mountain Biking is a specialist Mountain Bike "Club" formed for those who are passionate about Mountain Biking. We are located in Howick in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands of South Africa and do most of our riding in the plantations between Howick and the Karkloof. Technical singletrack is where we are at and to this end we have laid out over 30km of tracks, varying from gentle terrain and tree lined paths to attention grabbing sections that are aptly named Suicide Slide, The Face, Rushalot and Pines.
Howick MTB Club has numerous club activities and schedule regular club rides. Although we love singletrack, we cater for all levels of riders. We ride hard, we have fun, and we simply revel in Mountain Biking!
We found Harrow Hill a lovely, warm & welcoming place. A great place to start winding down on your way to your final destination. We will certainly return.
