About Trail du Mont Rochelle

Literally on the edge of the French Corner awaits a trail experience second to none!
Packed with lung-bursting climbs, glorious open single track, breathtaking descends with equally breathtaking views over valleys that once were the roaming grounds of the majestic elephant!

Situated in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, itself a hidden gem in the mountains surrounding the quaint little town of Franschhoek, a truly magical trail experience awaits those brave enough to enter the Trail du Mont Rochelle (TdMR).

Only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, this event is not to be missed. Now in its 4th year TdMR takes place in a privately owned reserve that forms part of the Cape Winelands Biosphere and is a UNESCO declared World Heritage Site, and is limited to only 600 runners.

Welcome! Enjoy, preserve & protect our environmental heritage.

Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, a hidden gem in the mountains surrounding the quaint little town of Franschhoek, has been touted as one of the best trails in the country.

Once the roaming grounds of majestic elephants boasting two peaks with spectacular views of both the Stettynskloof and Wemmershoek dams and a breathtaking view of the entire Franschhoek Valley, it is also a perfect event for lovers of open, well maintained, single track trails. Depending on the weather leading up to the event.

Don’t let these distances fool you! You’ll be getting a great workout!

There is a 1387m gain in elevation in the first 10km till you reach the Perdekop Peak. This can break you but the views are totally worth it. Between Perdekop Peak and the Uitkyk crossing you feel like you’re connected to nature far away from civilisation and more amazing views & silence to take in. Then from the new trail section “Manganese Trail” from the Uitkyk Junction it’s a 300m climb towards Du ToitsKop Peak in less than 2km with a spectacular view over Elephants Corner, which later became French Corner and eventually Franschhoek. Imagine, back in 1688 you would have had a breathtaking view of elephants patrolling the area!!!!

What goes up must come down and one of the highlights of this event is certainly the spectacular descends & the fact that you are surrounded by dams! Flanked by the Franschhoek Valley on your right and magnificent mountains on your left, we’ll forgive you for taking your time to come down.

For the speedsters and technical trail specialist, this is heaven!
