De Hoop Road
About De Hoop Road
From Uniondale, through the Poort to the top of the climb and then left onto the dirt road clearly signposted “De Hoop”, with a Mountain Pastures sign. If you follow it to the top of the descent (you will not be confused when you see it…it goes DOWN) then turn back, it’s a 40 km out and back. Low fitness, low skill. But pretty.
If you go down the hill and continue another 20kms until the road ends at a farm gate, it requires much higher fitness and you better be able to manage intermediate level obstacles.
Of course if you go through the farm you hit the R62, but maybe you need backup support if you go all the way.
