Situated atop the picturesque Piketberg mountain in the Western Cape, surrounded by tranquil countryside, you'll find Highlands Estate. The stately log manor is set within 550 hectares of unspoilt farmland, offering unrivaled natural beauty, an array of indigenous flora and fauna, panoramic mountain views and a multitude of sunset vantage points. Just 90 minutes from Cape Town, Highlands Estate offers a remote, yet accessible, escape from busy city life.
At Highlands Eco Estate we have a 10km mountain bike trail through the estate's unspoilt and picturesque countryside. Perfect for a morning or afternoon trail ride and suitable for relatively experienced mountain bike riders. The route starts at the Highlands Eco Estate Lodge, with a climb to the top dam, through bush and onto a game trail back down towards the lower dam. Down from the dam onwards through neighbouring orchards and a climb back to the start at the Lodge. Highly enjoyable and beautiful surrounding scenery.
