Plett Game Reserve to Buffelsnek Return via Tour De Plett route

58km; 1152m  
Trail Overview

Park just inside the game reserve gate, on the right hand side of the road. Follow the route through the Uplands dairy farms and up through two climbs and a long descent, before you cross the river and start the 6km climb to the Buffelsnek Forest Station…beware of the last 500m!! (Small shop at Buffelsnek with basics…even for cyclists!). Please be sure all closed gates are closed again behind you. Proceed down the Uniondale Rd in the direction of Knysna and turn left back into the Buffelsnek forest at the Ysternek gate. You now follow a section of the Tour de Plett marathon route (beware of the very first descent!)…this will ultimately bring you to the base of Buffelsnek from where you will climb back up to the Plett/Uniondale Rd. Turn right at the Uniondale Rd and enjoy the rolling 8kms back to the Game Reserve
