Accommodation: Located on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth, accommodation is varied and plentiful being very close to Blue Horizon Bay, Van Stadens Resort, Maitland River Mouth and Jeffreys Bay.

Slipperfields has their own guesthouse close by for those who wish to overnight.

The Trail:
The trail is a typical cross-country course with varied degrees of technical components to challenge the more seasoned mountain biker. The trail is approximately 20km with options of a 10km route. There is another 15kms under construction.
A kiddies trail and BMX park are also in the pipeline.

Slipperfields Trails have become a popular place for couples, families and friends. If you are keen to push the envelope, there will be more than enough in the route to keep you gripped, but the riding is fine for the rest of the family at a slower pace, too. The best thing is that you can enjoy the outdoors in a safe and secure environment.

The Slipperfields Farm Kitchen provides a full farm breakfast, light meals and refreshments. Slipperfields Event and Conference Centre is fully licensed and has credit card facilities.

The trails are open weekends and public holidays from 6am to 5pm in summer and 7am to 4pm in winter.
By appointment during the week.
