There are numerous trails in and around Stellenbosch.  Even though we are not financially responsible for all of them they are all great and well worth a visit.  Some of them can only be accessed on a permit basis so always make sure you have paid the relevant fee.  Bicycles are also easy to rent from BMT in Stellenbosch's Dorp Street, as well as Ride-In Cafe, all just a stones-throw away from three of the STF's main tracks.



G-Spot has now attained international status as one of the best rides in the world.  This trail is managed by us and as such is free of cost.  You can find G-Spot parking at the top of Kronendal Road.
