Plantation Link

This link is a mix of singe track and jeep track, linking the Witfontein trails to the Saasveld trails so you can avoid riding through town.

The trail crosses the Swart river at Pepsi pools which is at a  beautiful little waterfall in the indigenous forest. Great place for a picnic and swim. The route then contours around the Garden Route Dam with some really scenic views. You can do this route in either direction.

Start and finish at the George Botanical Gardens (49 Caledon Street, George).
