    Default South Africa's toughest 4x4 Trails?

    Is there anywhere a list of SA's toughest trails?
    There was a magazine article a few years? back rating some of the toughest trails - I cant seem to find it now..

    Maybe the guys who have driven many, can rate some of the trails they consider to be the toughest?



    EDIT: Herewith list (based on info given in this thread):

    Moegatle
    At Se Gat
    Jobedi - near Vaalwater
    The Gorge - near Hekpoort
    Bobejaans?
    Hex Rivier?
    Wuppertal - Johmy se Poort
    Wagon Wheel - Ratel route
    3 provinces?
    Sekororo
    CARNAGE CANYON

    Moegatle is considered as one.
    At Se Gat is another one, currently here at the moment and will be doing some of the trails on Saturday and will then have a better idea of the trails although a lot of the trails are closed due to flooding at the moment.

    I know it's not considered tough by any stretch of imagination but every time I go to Helderberg 4x4 ( 2 oceans to the older folk ), I see some serious vehicle damage happening.

    Then you need to do more trails. Helderberg is incredibly easy.

    Helderberg? Serious Dit is seker een van my grootste teleurstellings nog. Ek is so 3 weke terug met my stock standard kar (net n stel groter bande) daar uit, nerens maar nerens was dit eens effens moeilik nie.

    Ek sal graag eendag n paar van die moeiliker roetes wil aandurf om ondervinding te kry. Ek beskou myself maar nog as novice wat rotes betref, en sal graag n paar moeilike roetes op my kerfstok wil kry. So ek hou die lys dop, veral vir Weskaap roetes.

    Ek hoor Patrol Hill kan soms moeilik wees.

    And since then I've increased its height by 1 meter, still 1 more to go... And the inside is a propper clay bath at the moment. But by wednesday a lot of that clay would have been scooped out and added to the wall...
