Reverse Western Loop Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 7B
Distance: 13.39km
Extremeness: Tough climb & very technical single track
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me

Today we did our Jonkers Western Loop in reverse. We started with the fairly tough MTB climb west of the Jonkershoek gate and then jogged on the contour trail towards the fire hut. We then connected to Sosyskloof and continued on the contour path, after which we descended down Swartboskloof. After some ankle breaking single track coming down, we finished with about 2.5km on the normal Jonkershoek circle route. What a beautiful run!
