Holla Mountain Bike Trails launched on 1 March 2009. Holla Trails are a system of marked mountain biking trails among the farms in the Ballito area similar to that of the EMBA system on Tongaat Hulett land in and around Durban.
Only riders with a Holla permit are allowed access to the farmlands in the Ballito, Compensation and Upper Tongaat area, those without permits are trespassing and risk prosecution. This arrangement has been carefully negotiated with private landowners in the region who have become increasingly concerned about the uncontrolled growth of mountain biking in the area.
