Seven Passes Road (Saasveld Road)

The Seven Passes Road winds its way through an indigenous forest, over historic stone bridges, through lush farmlands and provides sweeping views over the sparkling Indian Ocean.
The historic pass built by the pioneer pass builder, Thomas Bain (in the
1890s) it takes about 90 minutes from George to Knysna, but you may elect to do just the section up to Wilderness, as the section is tarred.
Bain built stone bridges in 1892 to replace the drifts
over the Kaaimans River, the Touw River and Swart River.

How to get there:
From Knysna Road (at Pine Lodge) take the NMMU campus turn-off and continue along the Saasveld Road (past the great white entrance to the university campus) onto the old road between George and Wilderness for some lovely forest views, turning right towards Wilderness Heights (if you do not want to go all the way on the old pass).Continue on to view the ‘Map of Africa’ or go down into Wilderness.
Visitors can catch a glimpse of some of the loveliest farms in the area with the Outeniqua Mountains providing spectacular backdrop.

CAUTIONARY NOTE: the road was severely damaged during floods and is ‘fragile’. In several places the road sags or has potholes and these have been marked with signposts in the middle of the surface.

Harkerville - cycling trail

Harkerville has four(4) colour-coded Harkerville routes offer a range of routes to suit all ... Please be aware that all the trails except the Yellow Route may be closed if heavy rain has fallen. ...

Situated between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, Harkerville forest is the ideal location for recreational mountain-biking to suit all levels or riders.
The relatively easy gradients and diversity of the rides offer some of the finest cycling in the Southern Cape. All four start and finish at the Garden of Eden, on the N2, where permits must be obtained. Alternative access roads are available, starting from the Forestry Office, Kranshoek Road Gate, or the Kranshoek Picnic Site. Permits may also be obtained at the Kranshoek Road Gate

Yellow Route (14km) : An easy ride along reasonably level gravel service roads – perfect for the not-so-fit. This may be the only ride permissible when the other forest trails are closed due to wet conditions.

Blue Route (12km) : An easy option, with sections of singletrack, the route meanders through the forest before looping back through a glade of giant redwood trees planted in 1927.

Green Route (15km) : An intermediate, circular route passing a shady swimming hole making this a great ride for a hot day. A southern loop bangs onto a breathtaking view of the rugged coastline before returning through a , a delightful section of off-road track which passes through some tall, coastal forest with a number of the finest examples of hard pear.

Red Route (24km) : this tougher ride must be rated as one of the most scenically diverse MTB trails in SA. Get ready for wicked stretches of singletrack and a vertigo-inducing coastal cruise along towering fynbos cliffs. Two steep downhill sections require due caution while the climbs will get your blood pumping. This route will take anything from 2-4hours, depending on your fitness. An overnight hut allows riders to opt for a two-day forest ride, that must be booked in advance. Keep in mind that heavy rain might cause the routes (except the Yellow option) to be closed.
