Giba Gorge MTB Park
- +27 31 769 1419
Nestled in a lush green valley alongside the N3 freeway just outside Pinetown, lies Giba Gorge MTB Park. A place for outdoor enthusiasts with something suitable for the whole family, from kids to grand parents. Whether it is the kids scooting around the BMX track, the avid mountain bikers & trail runners making use of the single track trails, the adrenalin fuelled downhillers or the families and couples choosing to picnic on the lawn or relaxing in the outdoor restaurant, there is something to appeal to everyone of all ages and sizes.
Giba has officially been around since the start of 2007, when Chris and Steve Harburn decided to cut some trails onto property they had purchased when they took over Stockville Quarry. This started something in motion that could not have been foreseen, the future of Giba Gorge MTB Park. From it’s inception, it was with the help of friends and biking enthusiasts, that the park gained popularity and momentum, to such an extent that the park has always been trying to keep up with the demand of it’s visitors.
The bike & lifestyle park has its hub based around the picnic area, restaurant and BMX track, with single track trails that lead off in various directions covering an additional 300 hectares of privately owned land. Riding here has always been at the discretion of the individual land owners, without whom the progress and variety of the trails would not have been possible.
