KOPJESKRAAL MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL

Another short trail from Otters' Haunt in the Vredefort Dome. This one involves crossing the veld and climbing a fairly steep hill (which defeats most average riders). The word "kopje" means small hill, and here it refers to the hills making up the collar of the Dome (which is the central uplift of the world's largest meteorite impact site). "Kraal" means corral, so Kopjeskraal means the cattle enclosure between small hills! The view from Kopjeskraal lookout is breathtaking, and well worth the ride.
