Jonkershoek Dark Side Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 7B
Distance: 17km
Extremeness: Technical single track and fairly tough climb
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me

On Saturday we did one of our standard Jonkershoek Eastern Loops. I've decided to call the Eastern side of Jonkers "The Dark Side" given that in summer you can do most of your run in the shadows of the Pieke - if you are early enough. We started with three sections of Canary and finished with the Never Ending route... connecting to the single track in the middle of Jonkers. During the run we saw a Caracal - a very rare site during the day!

Caracal (literally "Red Cat" of Rooikat in Afrikaans)
