Jonkershoek Western Loop Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 7B
Distance: 13.6km
Extremeness: Technical single tracks and a climb
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me

On Saturday morning we did one of my favourite Jonkershoek routes! It did not disappoint with epic scenery and the early morning light breaking through the clouds as we were on the epic top contour through Sosyskloof. I also enjoyed the section from the Fire Hut back to the gate. We tried out the new single track that descents to the gate... very nice. All in all an inspiring run!
