Grabouw mountains onwards to Botrivier and Dassiesfontein
« on: November 26, 2013, 05:20:12 pm »
Nice few hours on the xt with good mate spannerman, over Grabouw mountains through Vyeboom onto Botrivier- road washed away, u turn- on towards dassiesfontein and then around down to Highlands road for Castle breakfast and back to CT. Place is green as can be and dams full after all the rain from the last week or two.

Lekker place to go riding, XT Joe. Nice pics.

Did you guys get to Botrivier from Vyeboom via Van Der Stel's Pass?

Planned to but road was washed out -turned back and right- you then come out on the Villiersdorp -Botrivier/dassiesfontein  road. Behind the Grabouw country there is a nice stuff into mountains, endless roads. Love the area :thumleft:

Took my wife to the area a couple of weeks ago, but had to cut the ride short. Next time, we'll plan better to get more out of the ride.
