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.
