    It looks nice. It's pretty new, opened a few months ago.

    Just went here today. Excellent 4x4 trails, of which there are 3. Wouldn't really recommend to anyone not comfortable with hardcore 4x4 obstacles and trails. Also wouldn't go with anything that doesn't have diff locks and low range because you'll need that for most of the trail.

    If anyone is looking for some 4x4 trails that are challenging and fun at the some time definitely give this place a visit. I know the link is posted above but I'll add it again here: https://web.facebook.com/John-Rock-4...12871286741063

    Enjoy!

    That looks very lekker! Is that still in Gauteng? Might have to include hunting there if not...

    Wanted to go there at some point but I am very rusty when it comes to 4x4'ing since I only recently bought the ranger.

    Will a standard 4x4 ranger do OK there? It does have diff lock.

    We shed some (unnecessary) plastic off the bottom of the D4 and destroyed one sidewall. That is the 3rd wrangler duratrac sidewall in 2 years.

    some obstacles need some lift, but take it slow and easy and you should be fine. The guys there will tell you the areas where it might be....bumpy.
