When the fires in 2011 devastated the very limited existing trails in Jonkershoek, a small group of local mountain bikers that frequent the trail came up with the idea to upgrade the trails after one of their rides
Following discussions with Cape Nature, Cape Pine and landowners trail builders was soon at work on the mountains, initially funded purely by a few individual donations. A fundraiser was coordinated by local bike shops which contributed to the initiative. Directional signage was also installed across the trails to enhance safety.
