The legendary Harkerville Trails are considered mountain biking and trail running Utopia. We provide the opportunity for people of all ages and fitness levels to absorb the magic of these famous forests with friends and family. You can loosen up your off-day legs with a brisk hike over a longer 10km distance or amble the shorter 6km and 2.5km walks at fairy listening pace.

Who knows, you may just spot a Knysna Loerie, or better, an elephant. Our aim is to educate the ecological importance of the forests whilst embracing quality family time, health and wellness for all ages in an eco-friendly way.

The first 360 online entries receive a fitted Merrell Long Sleeve Top to the value of R800 (13 years and upwards). All kids will receive a very useful FNB winter buff among other treats. All participants are treated to an entertaining talk on the fascinating history of the region, intimate information about the rare forest plant and animal species and more.

Pre and post hike they also enjoy FNB’s famous hospitality in a cosy & stylish marquee including hot soup, snacks, massage, music, colouring in competitions, amazing lucky draw prizes and more.
