    Default Groenkloof Nature resort 4x4 echo trail

    Is there anyone out there that could recommend this trail? Is it an easy beginner trail or is there some challenge to it?

    All of the above! There are some nice challenging sections, but these can usually be bypassed with 'chicken runs'. I was also impressed by the beauty and animal diversity of the reserve, we even saw a black-backed jackal there.

    So I took the morning off freedom and gave the Groenkloof Nature Reserve trail a go.
    It was fun till hit the mud hole and I decided to give it a skip.
    Then we got to Rocking mountain high and there I got stuck leading to the damage on the last photo.
    The rest of the trail I took the easy way out though maybe this 4x4 trails thing is not why I bought a R400K 4x4 for....

    I also got some trail rash there, want an aftermarket rear bumper now but eish, it's expensive... You quickly learn your vehicle's capabilities and limitations on those rocky sections...

    Don't worry about the comments.

    I did not even do that section with my bakkie. I drove with a friend once in that section and that was enough to know my stock standard bakkie is not getting through that without a scratch or dent. My sidesteps are very low and would have taken a beating!

    Mine was not bought to do 4x4 trails. Mostly sea holidays and roads where necessary but not specific for trails. If I do a trail and I think the route might be a bit rough on the vehicle, I take the chicken route without feeling like one!
