Overview
More
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. 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 35km 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. Bring the whole family to experience the magic. If you would like to stay, we have Trail House which sleeps eight; and a Backpackers which sleeps 20.

Excellent time at the park. Variety of trails for all levels. Kids could safely sit at the trail cafe while we rode, they also had many trails we could ride with them. Excellent coffee as well. Perfect place to spend all day.
