Exploring Jonkershoek

Mountain bikers from On the Trail explores the trail network of Jonkershoek

Old Nectar recently hosted the team from On the Trail while they were in Stellenbosch riding and filming the amazing trail network that Jonkershoek has to offer. Old Nectar’s convenient location was one of the reasons why the team decided to stay here. The entrance to the Jonkershoek trail network is literally 2.5km or a 10-minute easy ride on your mountain bike from your Old Nectar accommodation.

Jonkershoek has long been synonymous with great mountain biking, but it was only in the last 10 years that it started to morph into the world-class trail riding destination it is today.

Devlin from On the Trail had the following to say: “Coming back to my old stomping ground, where I discovered Mountain biking 25 years ago, has been a phenomenal journey. The trails in Jonkershoek are truly exceptional. They are true Trail Bike trails. Technical, big mountain climbs, big mountain descents, seemingly endless single track…….. Forget that there are almost no facilities. This place is a must ride for any real mountain biker. Period:
