And last but not least the pastel huts next to the dam. Does anyone know why these were built.

The huts were built for a photographer who does weddings or something along those lines.
Did you see "The King" was out of his pen today?

Looks easier than it actually isSmile Was out there on Saturday and probably some of the best singletrack climbing around.  Does anyone know how many metres of vertical ascent it is from the start to just before the last climb to the radio masts??

Between Contermans and Hillcrest, MTB trails around this area are going to boom. Add to that Meerndal and Majik and you'd be hard pressed to not get the MTB out.

Personal favourite is Contermans up to the mast. Been down the double black but my skilz level isn't there yet although I nailed the bottom black bit. It's a biggish circuit with a little bit of everything.
