Northern Farm Nature Reserve (also known as the Diepsloot Nature Reserve) is one of Johannesburg's best-kept secrets and offers more than 2 500 hectares of beautiful green grasslands and woodlands to explore. There are also several dams in the reserve and you may see almost 270 different bird species while riding.
Northern Farm is a mountain-biker’s dream, with a wide variety of terrains suitable to everyone, from beginners to competitive cyclists, in a safe environment that is suitable for the whole family. Cyclist can select their own route that would fit to their cycling experience. All of the routes are well marked and easy to follow while riding a bike.
Route 1 runs through the middle of the farm and is mostly sand road and jeep track and is ideal for beginners. If you are looking for something a little bit more technical and challenging, opt for Routes 2 and 3, which incorporate fantastic one-direction single track in the Blue Gum Forest and the Mamba Trail. Route 3 adds an extra few kilometres by taking you down to the bottom of the farm, and it also includes the more technical single track (winter months only) that runs along the river.
