About George Trails

George Trails is a trail-tourism project founded and managed by the Green Sport Foundation non-profit. George Trails was founded in 2015 and George is the original Green Sport ‘My Trail Town’. The ‘My Trail Town’ trail-tourism model benefits both tourists that enjoy trail activities as well as the local community, on many levels. 

My Trail Town is an open source trail tourism platform created by Green Sport (and Beta tested through George Trails) that aims to offer anybody across South Africa and the Globe the opportunity to make their own city or town a My Trail Town. With this they will enjoy all the benefits associated with attracting trail tourism; such as creating a healthier local community, stimulating economic activity and creating jobs. Not to even mention expanding their local trail networks.

George Trails is not legislative in any way and we leave that to our landowners. We support the local community of enthusiastic clubs, organizations, events, athletes and weekend warriors who make George such a great destination. We have seen substantial growth in participation numbers over the last five years because of your efforts and continue to welcome both locals and tourists alike to our beautiful natural playground.

We salute the many passionate individuals that play outside around George all the time whilst caring for our environment, maintaining trails and sharing the great outdoors in a safe and responsible manner.
