      The Braamfontein Spruit Runs through the suburbs of greater Johannesburg from the Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia/Greenside in the West, all the way to Sunninghill, Bryanston, in the East. There are a network of singletrack mountain bike trails along the entire length of the Spruit, as well as onto adjoining parklands. Trail users should always be situationally aware and preferably ride in Groups, especially on more isolated parts of the Spruit. Most of the Spruit and the adjacent trails are on land managed by Johannesburg City Parks and the trails are maintained by Jozi Trails in collaboration with City Parks.
