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.

Wilderness to Victoria Bay on the Old Railway Line

The walk along the railway line from Wilderness to Victoria Bay is one of the easiest around.

From the N2 take the last/first exit in Wilderness (nearest to the Kaaimans river) and follow Sands Road to the carpark at the end, right next to the beach.

Make your way up the bank to the railwail line and follow it all the way to Victoria Bay. The Outeniqua Choo Tjoe used to travel this route before the line was badly damaged during the 2006 floods. The walk crosses the bridge over the Kaaimans river mouth and may be challenging for those with severe vertigo.

The walk is very scenic with plenty of photo opportunities - on occasion even whales and dolphins may be spotted.

The route meanders through a couple of tunnels and past an old restaurant tucked snugly into a cave. The beautifully kept premise is both eery and surreal. If Neptune or Ariel should show up, nobody would be too surprised. A special train cart used to deliver passengers to the restaurant and then return them to Wilderness station but now the tables only hint at the memories of merry.

The last tunnel brings a beautiful view of Victoria Bay spread at your feet and you will find a path down to the bay just past the forlorn sign announcing that you arrived at Victoria Bay. Make your way down and enjoy some refreshments, swim if the weather is nice and relax a little before you make your way back to Wilderness.

Remember to pack some water and plenty of sunscreen for this walk!
