Hero Adventure Trails - Spice Route , Paarl

Recommended Posts

Spice Route Destination and Fairview Estate is one of the most visited attractions in the Winelands area . located lease than 30 min from Durbanville and 40 min from Strand and the City Bowl , it is the ideal venue to take the family or mates for a awesome day out. 


Spice Route has no less than 5 restaurants , a host of different artisans that include craft beer , gin , chocolate , cheese and 2 new kids play areas that include pump tracks . 


Developing a Hero Adventure Trail park was a no brainer and together with the land owners we have spent the better part of 18 months developing a network of trails to suit everyone . 


The Western Cape is blessed with many trails and trail parks .The variety and quality is probably right up there with the best in the world . But when designing and planning the trails at Spice Route our key focus was developing trails for the families and weekend warriors . With Hero - Rhebokskloof , Paarl Adventure Trails and Wild boar trails , the area is packed with great trails for the intermediate -experienced cyclist/runner . We felt there was a gap for trails for the less experienced , juniors and fun trails for tourists . 


Spice Route and Fairview is a venue where people visit to enjoy the views , wine , food and just have a great time . We have taken that foundation of fun and tried to put it into the trails we have developed . We wanted to develop trails that are not difficult , packed with features and provide a place where newbies - intermediate cyclists/runners can enjoy lots of fun single-track . The majority of trails on offer have very little elevation ,giving weekend warriors ,families and tourists the opportunity to get in some proper distance and experience all the great features on the farm . We have  however added in a number of pockets where the more adventrous and experienced get their moneys worth .  


The 1st few months were not much fun . having to deal with difficult terrain and finding a happy medium between having set trails on a working farm . but as we move into the coming season we are really excited at how the park is developing . 



* 2 kids areas with obstacles and pump tracks 

* 3km Yellow Trail : A fun short trail through the vineyards close to the main buildings 

* 5km Pink Trail : A fun but pretty challenging trail that traverses down to the lower part of the farm and back up. 

                           it includes a 2km flow trail and forest , so packed with fun 

* 10km Green Trail : This Trail in our opinion is perfect for weekend warriors just getting started , families and 

                                 tourists looking for a fun easy adventure . lots of single-tack , vineyards , olives and and ..

* 20km Blue Trail : The popular trail for mates, tourists and families that want some proper distance but not 

                              technical . the blue showcases many different parts of the farm and terrain , packed with 

                              features and a great experience

*35km Red Trail : The Red Trail was built for a great day out for the intermediate cyclist/runner .With all

                            the fun and adventure of the blue but topped off with a few challenges and technical sections 

                            to get the adrenalin going . The Red trail also includes sections of the new XCO Trail we 

                            developed for provincial xco champs at Diamant Estate next door 

* XCO Trail : We have a dedicated 5km xco trail on the property next Door ( Diamant Estate ) where you get to

                    experience some proper xco love , also included on the red trail

* Link trails : There are also 2 link trails that go up Paarl Mountain and to Hero Adventure - Rhebokskloof . Hero

                     Adventure - Spice Route also forms part of the Paarl Adventure Trail Network and has direct

                     access to over 200km of other trails within the project


Spice Route is a great venue to enjoy a fun day out after your ride , run or walk . grab a shower at the venue and 

spend the day with family and friends enjoying all the artisans and experiences .
