Mountain Biking in Stellenbosch

Mountain biking is an extremely popular activity in and around the Stellenbosch area. The varied terrain, wide open spaces, mountains and vineyards provide the ideal playground for the avid mountain biker.

Popular locations to go mountain biking include the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, the Delvera Dirtopia mountain bike trail and other public and private grounds. Jonkershoek and Delvera require a fee for admission to the trails, public grounds are usually fine and it is best to request permission from the owner before venturing onto private property.

The Jonkershoek Nature Reserve trail is set amongst beautiful surroundings. The valley between the towering mountains is home to fynbos vegetation, a few pretty dams, small forests and plenty of wild animals. Access to the trails is controlled by Cape Nature and requires a fee payment for admission. It is worth the fee.

Enjoy your mountain biking and be sure to be safe, wear a helmet, bring water, a partner and enjoy the dirt and dust.
