      Imagine a secret place off the beaten track, where endless trails snake their way through ancient forests. Wooded giants stand guard over the singletracks as they fly through streams, shady fern glades and forest tunnels. The secret Knysna singletracks that are always spoken of but never seen. Only a privileged few have had the opportunity to experience this world, where the forest elephants still roam today and folk lore talks of magical moments only mother nature can provide. Escape into the undiscovered and become part of the journey through the Outeniqua forests.

      The Garden Route Trail Park is nestled at the very foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and the Karatara River Gorge, midway between George and Knysna, in the heart of the Garden Route. Bring the whole family to experience the magic.
      Our carefully designed routes have been laid out to provide riders of all levels with an over supply of adrenalin, excitement, scenery and amazing views. Over 20km of hand built singletrack in the infamous farmer tradition, with flowing turns, burms, rollers and river crossings. For the runners there is flowing forest trail and the chance to get up close and personal with the upper reaches of the Karatara River. Massive rock pools, waterfalls and boulders.
