Wilderness Lakes MTB Route, Wilderness, Garden Route


Stretching from the mouth of the Touws River, all the way through to the Goukamma Nature Reserve, Wilderness is a Ramsar site and an internationally proclaimed area of wetland conservation. The park is made up of intertwining lakes, estuaries and river systems that flow out onto the windswept east coast beaches.

Starting at Eden Adventure this 30km return route is an easy enough ride for most levels of riders, with most of the route following flat and quiet country roads with a good gravel surface.

Other: Wilderness has exquisite mountains, rugged coastline and inland lakes, it is a paradise for all outdoor enthusiasts whether its land, water or air. You can choose from hiking, abseiling, paragliding, canoeing, boating, bird watching, hang gliding and surfing. Wilderness is approximately 15km away from the George Airport.
