    Default Sable Ranch 4x4 Trail (New Trail)

    Have driven the Sable Ranch 4x4 Trail this weekend. Apparently they have only opened before the lockdown.

    Really enjoyed it. There is a Noble Village (part of it) where you can order food, there is a play area for the kids and also some Beer on Tap.

    Nice video!

    Looks like a lovely place to go play.

    Question.... I'd like to go there soon, but my tyres won't like the rocky section (towards the end, I'd be worried about sidewall cuts for me).... is it possible to give that section a skip?

    It really is a nice place yes. (Think it will be interesting when it is wet).

    What tyres do you have?

    You can skip the rocky section. All the obstacles do have bypass routes.

    If you pick the line correct you should not damage tyres.

    I must say that the side wall of the GY Adventures I have are really holding up well thus far (42,000 km).

    Mtber's and my Rangers have Continentals M+S tyres.

    I saw the one obstacle with flat 'tiles' that may cut our sidewalls.

    Just asking if we can skip that route.

    Yes, you can definitely skip the rocky section. I stopped at the beginning of this part and walked a big part of it to check.

    Before I started I was actually advised not to do the rocky section as there is a chance to damage your vehicle (That is why I ended up walking it first - nothing bumped, but I do have Rocksliders and a bashplate as protection).

    If you don't do the rocky part there is still more than enough to do.

    And the cost... R100 per vehicle. This makes it a bargain at this stage...

    Looks like a quite easy chilled day. Might be a bit more tricky if the track is wet, but from what I can see most softroaders would cruise through that course. (This is not a bad thing)

    Correct yes, they actually say you can do some of it with a 4x2. The chicken routes you should be able to do with a 4x2/Softroader.

    The rocky part you will need Low Range and good ground clearance.

    If it rains the ups and downs will become very slippery...
