Wilderness Lakes Loop

This loop takes you along a district road next to the Wilderness lake system then up a steep climb to get to the Seven passes road which takes you back to Wilderness.

The Wilderness Lakes has a status as Wetlands of International Importance according to the Ramsar convention. The wetlands, which are now managed by South African National Parks, include the Serpentine river, Island Lake, Langvlei and Rondevlei. These lakes, each a wetland by itself, form a link in the chain of the Touw River that meets the sea at Wilderness.  These wetlands support 285 endemic plants, 32 fish species, up to 300 bird species, and a variety of invertebrate.

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Wilderness after your ride.
