Morning riders, and Winter hiders

Help me please, i generally dont ride with a speedo on my mtb so could anyone give me a distance estimate plse.

From Tokai car park, jeep track all the way to Silvermine, Silvermine Loop, from there head back towards Bridal Path. Turn around and start decending via single track Mamba, Boomslang, jeeptrack till Vasbyt, decend Vasbyt and thereafter either jeep or Roots or Faerie back to the car park.
Anyone got a more or less km's figure.

If you really know this Tokai area well, can you advise in this manner.

Car park to Silvermine gate via Jeep track = Km ?
Silvermine Loop = Km ?
Silvermine to Bridal = Km ?
From top of Bridal back down jeep track to car park taking the following single (Mamba, Boomslang, Vasbyt, Roots, Faerie) = Km?

Tokai to Noordhoek peak (Silvermine loop) and down 31kms.

Tokai to Silvermine Dam and down 25kms

Tokai to Mast and down 23kms

Tokai to Silvermine gate and down, as Zula explained is 22kms

Tokai to Switchbacks and down 18km

These are averages from going up and down single, or mix of jeep and single.

Shot alot, this is now for Knysna training, was just wondering if we should be riding other places as prep.
Once we tend to come down, there is very little enthusiasm to go back up and do a repeat.
