The Montagu Pass lays claim to being the oldest, unaltered pass still in use in South Africa. This 7.4km narrow gravel road was completed in 1848 and built to replace the highly dangerous Cradock Pass.
The pass climbs to an altitude of 780m passing through indigenous forest and mountain fynbos. It also passes the historic Toll House.
