Berakah eco quad trail Quad biking weekend

Berakah Quad biking weekend.

This past weekend we dicided to test out the new quad trailer that I bought and go to the berakah eco trail  for an outride.

It turned out to be one of the best quad experiences we've have had in a long time!!

The quad track is layed out in such a way that everyone who gives it a try, will have a good time.

The obstacles are scary but fun, and for those with a weak heart there is always an alternative route.

Tacha spent most of the time behind the camera, so she isn't in any of the shots, but she went wherever I did :)

The first "real" obstacle is a very low log bridge that is pretty easy to cross, but does give you a good feel of what's to come...

We decided to have a quick smoke break before going further with the track

The approach angle in this obstacle is a bit tricky because of the turning downhill, but becomes easier the second time around

I call this obstacle "the bump".
It doesnt seem like much from the photo, but the 2 meter bump really wrenches your body, and gave the suspension quite a good workout.

Later that day we met up with some of the guys that rented quads (honda fourtrax 250's) on the farm, and Tacha decided to take a pic of one of them climbing a pariclularly steep hill :)

Climbing this rocky hill on the rustler quad was a breeze with the low range, and ended up being one of the highlights of the trail

This hill does get a bit bumpy at the top so it is a good idea to stand, and let your legs act as a second buffer. ;)

All that bumping was worth it in the end. JUST LOOK AT THAT VIEW!!!

From this vantage point you can see the most of the farm layed out in the valley

We thought we'd have another break and enjoy the view before going on

When we got back on the quads, and rode 20 meters, we found ourselves in an almost tropical forest. The variety of landscapes was amazing.

The last downhill we faced was by far the most exiting! A five meter high slide into a stream, and then an eight meter climb on the other side.

This part of the track
can only be done by sliding down the washboard like surface, and holding on for dear life :)

All in all this was an awesome trip, and we'll be going back between christmas and new year!

One thing: Take LOTS of water when you are on the quad track. It gets very hot and dusty on parts of the track.
