My girlfriend, her brother and his fiancé went on a hike in the Reserve on Christmas Day. Although the Reserve was formally closed and the ablution facilities were shut, visitors were still able to walk from the gate into the Reserve. There are many brilliant hiking and mountain biking trails within the Reserve, ranging from novice to advanced levels. The trail we chose took us up towards the fire lookout point and towards two immensely beautiful and unspoiled waterfalls. The water from both falls is drinkable. The natural splendour of the Reserve is enough to see me returning there the next time I am in the area.

We love getting out in nature. Great family bonding time. First time I have ever come to this nature reserve and I loved it. In spring and summer come really early, it can get really hot. Bring the swimming costume the waterfalls are so inviting after hiking. Try to park at the start of your hiking trail. It is quite a distance from the entrance to the start of the trails. I saw quite a few families with smaller children turn back before they even started the hike.

I love hiking and have hiked so many trails so far, but this one is just something else. While hiking it seems like as if you are walking in a paradise. Start hiking early morning and enjoy the perfect sunrise. If you love photography by no chance miss this one to test your skills with your cameras. Skills+hiking+good stamina will take you all the way to the waterfalls on the top. These waterfalls are best place for meditation/Yoga. Just kidding but seriously spare some moment if you are in Cape Town or plannig to visit anytime soon!! Just go and hike this one!!!!

Fabulous location with great hikes. One 'easy' but more challenging ones. Really rough roads but 10k loop is worth doing.

Our Sunday hike choice was the Circular Loop at the Jonkershoek Cape Nature reserve. It’s a 10km gravel, Jeep track. This track is safe to walk on and is shared by mountain bikers and cars going to the various start points for the other trails. The trail sits in the valley as you are surrounded by all the mountains and hills. Taking in the vegetation and the nature as a whole is such an experience. There are several spots where you can take breaks or just take in the view, you just have to make the right choices. Parts of the trails are in full sun. Make sure you take enough water with on warm days. The halfway point has a strong stream. This is also the start point for the next level hike that takes you to the two stunning waterfalls. You can expect to pay R50 per person, which is quite steep but worth it. No cash on site and payments can be done via card or SnapScan and Zapper. The toilets at the start is also well maintained.
