Hels Hoogte - old road access


Recommended Posts

Hi Hubbers


Just wondering if anyone knows if we can get access to the old road from the bottom these days?


I rode up the "new road" about a month ago and saw that the pedestrian gate was open at the top. Just wondering if there is pedestrian / cyclist entry possible at the bottom? I know ages ago we could squeeze through the gate even when locked but that the gates have both long since been upgraded.


Keen to get some hill repeats done on the quieter road away from the weekend cars and motor bikes in the run up to Die Burger if possible.

Rode up old Helshoogte about a month ago. There was a security guard at the bottom gate and he just politely opened the gate and let us in...


Easy as that!!!

There is a gate at the bottom. This past Sunday there was a security guard opening and closing the gate.


Just be careful if you are on your own.
