Eden Forest

Eden Forest was one of the oldest tracks in the region and downhill competitions have been happening here since the 90’s. Forestry and fires have changed the landscape in the last 10 years and some of the old tracks have disappeared only to be replaced by new tracks. It is another of the tracks maintained by the Stellenbosch Trail fund and as such is free for use.


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