Van Loveren Trails

There are three mountain bike routes that offer amazing views of the farm and the valley. The routes range from an easy, scenic route for families to routes of intermediate difficulty that will keep fitter riders occupied for a few hours. You can bring your own bike or rent one from the farm. The routes all start and end at the Van Loveren tasting room, where riders can cool down afterwards. Kindly arrange your permits in advance if you plan to start the ride before our trading hours.
