Tower Loop

The Tower Loop starts with a 3km climb up to the FM Tower and offers excellent views over George. From there on it follows the top and bottom contours of the Witfontein Plantation. Watch out for hikers, runners, cyclists and dog walkers, especially on the bottom contour where 15km/h should not be exceeded.
