Absolute Motion


Hilton College has graciously allowed us to develop a network of trails on the Hilton College Estate for the use of mountain bikers and trail runners. The network of trails allows for more than 30 km of exciting mountain biking or trail running and at this time is continually evolving.

Access to Hilton College are for permit holders only. Day visitors must go to Absolute Motion and fill out a form for a day permit. This is private property and we ask all users to comply with the rules of the property and instructions given by the Hilton College personal as deemed necessary. These rules and instructions are to ensure the continuous use of the estate for mountain bikers and trail runners as well as for your safety.

Access to the estate is only permissible through the main Hilton College Gate and the Hilton College Security officers will check the validity of your permit before allowing you access to the estate. Access through any other point is not allowed and by accessing Hilton College in any other way will result in a permit holders’ permit being revoked as he/she will be trespassing and these individuals will be prosecuted as per the stipulations of section 1 of the Trespass Act 6 of 1959.
