I have been researching the popular outdoor magazines and the internet for options for our monhtly 4x4 Day-trip trails in the Western Cape and found to my surprise that there are very few of these left within a radius of 120km from CT and that we have done most of them already.

We can revisit some of these routes, but we cant do the same 3 routes all the time. Problem is that the ones realy close are the ones that are not challenging enough or they are not well maintained as they have an abundance of 4x4'ers visiting them because of the close proximity to town.

In order for us to get to the real ruffstuff we will have to start scouting further and further away. Clanwilliam/Citrusdal/Redelinghuis/Caledon/Touwsriver seems to have lots of fun routes but it is a bit far out for a day trip, any comments? Driving for 2 hours to get to the route, and then driving 2 hours to get back home is a half a day's work already, and does not leave a lot of time to have fun and socialise a bit with the manne :shock: :shock:

Is there anybody out there with knowledge of nice 4x4 routes that are not listed in the popular outdoor press that can help us out here?

Arrange a weekender every now and again (one night sleep over) for those further afield ones ..... most guys have camping gear / RTT's / tents etc so it does'nt have to cost an arm and a leg. Gives you guys a lot more time for trails and socialising! :think: .... :wink:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Cape Town is enveloped by mountain ranges, each being occupied by private farms that carry fantastic farm and jeep tracks that transverse challenging and stunningly picturesque landscapes. :mrgreen:

I feel very fortunate to have driven half a dozen of these "Private Trails" over the last six months. :P

Access was made possible by Private Club Event Organisers who have built up relationships with Land Owners in promoting Offroading by responsible, environmentally aware Club Members. :thumbup:

Maybe the Hilux4x4.co.za Event Organisers could engage in similar PR activities. :idea:

Tip - Turn on the T4A filter on Google Earth and watch the Trails appear :P

Very valuable feedback indeed Richard and that is exactly why I put the question out there. Now if there were only some dedicated Hilux Club members out there who know of such private farm tracks and who can facilitate said PR exercises between the Club Event Organisers and the land owners, that would be incredibly useful. :thumbup:

Andy our Events Calendar already caters for a weekend away once a month as well as a day-trip. Some people do not have all the equipment or even time to do weekends away, and would prefer to do day-trips, and that is why we want to do both. :thumbup:

True as bob Cassie:The three musketeers have done all the trails in and around cape Town: last Month when we tried to do Monteco-the new owner did not allow any day trips. So we went to Jakkalskloof in Redelingshys near Piketberg; the drive to there is long and hot.I think the best idea is to book a chalet for the week-end and then one can enjoy the trail to your hearts content.

@ Dadz ; hello there nice to hear from u ; long time no see.

Klink na 'n goeie idee Hentey, maar kan ons dalk eers Heuningberg toe gaan naby Porterville? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Ek wou onlangs Groot Toren by McGregor uitry, maar verneem toe dat die roete toe is vir dagbesoekers. Jy kan dit nou alleenlik ry as jy oorslaap by die kliphuis aan die bopunt van die roete.

We are stil not a lot closer to an answer , but I have a few routes that I am going to add to our WC to-do list for 2010:

Kroonland - Villiersdorp
Heuningberg - Porterville
Ou Trekpad - Atlantis (Net nie in die somer nie)

Remember that these outings are for Day Trippers only, so no use we put trails on here where we need to travel for 3 hours to get to. :D :D

Please if you know of any other routes, let us know so that we can add them to our to-do list. :wave: :wave:

Nou kyk nou net, hier is genoeg om jou heeljaar besig te hou.
Kom ons kyk waar daar nog is. Daar is geen rede om vir 'n dag by die huis te sit nie. Ons kan maklik en op kort kennisgewing besluit om gou 'n trip te gaan ry.
Ek sal ook bydra tot info.
Komaan Hiluxe , ons maak so!

Ons het gister die Riviersonderend 4X4 roete gaan ry op bladsy 85 van Weg Ry se 101 roetes. Ek weet nie hoe hierdie ouens dit in die boek gemaak het nie so skrap dit maar van jou lys af. Al drie roetes is omtrent net die eerste 20% begaanbaar, alles is of toegegroei of veggespoel. Die Forest Lodge bo op die berg het geen watergeriewe in die toilet binne die huis nie. Nie lekker as julle sewe mense is nie. Toe ons die bestuurder vra hoe dioe roete is toe se hy, hy weet nie want hy het nog nooit een van die roetes gery nie.

Hoe maak die ouens dit in die boeke met n drie tot vier gradeering, was dit nie vir die lekker waterpoele na die reen nie sou ek nie eens low range gebruik het nie.

Tragies wanneer die manne die "trail rating" opmors.

Ek is nog nuut met my Hilux en soek juis gradering 2, bietjie 3. om die voertuig te leer ken. Dan kom mens op stukke wat eintlik 4 amper 5 is. :shock:

Net so adverteer hulle roetes as 3 tot 4 dan is dit net n geskraapte grond pad ....

Dan natuurlik daai ding van die nat en droog trail rating ! Daai les amper BAIE DUUR geleer. N gemaklike gradering 2 trail gedoen, toe ons later terug gaan was dit "natterig" - nader aan n vier. Sonder diff lock op die vorige 4x4 het ek amper die voertuig baie seer gemaak ......
