There is a 21 km MTB route that circles the Roodepoort Mountain from Lara's Homestead. It comprises of 40% farm track as well as 60% dirt road section. It forms part of the Clarens MTB race and is a popular training run for local cyclists.
The first portion of the route offers a nice hiking route for the hikers that does not want to attempt the mountain climb. There is also a nice stop-over at a waterhole which is in essence the source of the Ash River prior to its joining of the Ash river water project
