“A very nice loop combining some flowy singletrack and mixed jeep track. Nothing technical other than loose rocks & sand.”— Garth Armstrong
As you cross the river, look for the right hand turn into Banana River singletrack, it's not well marked. If the river has flown recently, don't take this track, rather stay on the road crossing the river and then take Banana River Bypass before the houses start.
There is a short section of track (Jeep Track Across Banana River) that is not cleared and you'll need to navigate around some thorn trees, just follow the route and it will end soon.
Once on Highway to the Mast and Dash to the Dam (Bokaa), it's a long section of jeep track until you get near to the Bokaa Dam.
Follow the route, after the dam, you'll cross a concrete road, there is a right-hand turn off this road into a singletrack called River Run - Below Bokaa Dam. It has been marked, but the markers are old and faded and lots are missing.
When you get to the second bridge, you are close to Morwa Village. There is a shop close by.
After the third bridge, turn right out of the river and look for the The Long Drop - Home singletrack, that runs parallel with the A1 all the way back to Phakalane. Watch out for stumps on this track, they are well hidden and have claimed a number of victims.
All in all, the marking on the route is between sparse and non-existent. First timers must expect to take a number of wrong turns and do a bit of backtracking looking for the correct path.
