Hiking in the Stellenbosch area
The Swartboskloof hiking trail
The Jonkershoek Nature Reserve offers some of the best hiking in the Stellenbosch area. The Jonkershoek mountains form part of the larger Boland range and consist of several high peaks and deep kloofs with many interesting and beautiful hiking trails throughout.
The Swartboskloof hiking trail is one of the tougher trails but certainly one of the most rewarding. It covers a distance of 18km. With a steep 4.5km climb initially followed by a relatively flat hike across the the top of the mountains it ends with a steep hike down the steep Kruktrekkers Nek.
