At the heart of the Garden Route and nestled between mountain and ocean at the foothills of the Outeniqua mountain range, lies the picturesque city of George. As the 2nd largest city in the Western Cape, George offers an exceptional lifestyle and world class infrastructure, including a national airport, regional mall, championship golf courses and great trails…the perfect place for a balanced lifestyle.
Nowhere else in South Africa will you find indigenous forests, coastal fynbos, pine plantations, mountains, oceans, farmlands and semi-desert (Karoo) all within a 20km radius of a city center. George offers incredible trail diversity and many options so you will never get bored exploring this amazing natural playground. From this diversity and various route systems it was dubbed the ‘Trail Republic’, and your passport is free.
George Trails is a eco-tourism project founded by the Green Sport Foundation non-profit. George Trails is all about promoting George as a trail tourism destination and providing information to the hiker, trail runner or mountain biker. It is community focused an not legislative in any way and provides guidelines for the responsible and safe use of the trails. We are not trail builders, nor do we do trail maintenance but attempts to empower others to do this through our fund raising efforts.
