MTB Cycling Routes and Trail Info


If you want to get to know what the Plett locals love, don’t forget to pack your two wheels. With great road cycling terrain, waterfront views and off-road tracks, you can create your own personal sight-seeing tour, while getting some exercise at the same time!

Hop on the popular N2 route, stretching from Plett to Enrico’s Ristorante in Keurboomstrand. Along the way, you can stop for a bite to eat or a cup of java at Down to Earth, Thyme & Again, Berlin’s, The Dunes or Enrico’s.

The Petrus-se-Brand mountain bike trail is a one-way trail that can be done from either the Diepwalle Forest Station or Garden of Eden between Knysna and Plett on the N2. The Harkerville Forest MTB and the Cairnbrogie MTB Trail Park offer mountain bikers several off-road options for tearing it up.

While it may not be as fast, getting around on two wheels is often easier than four. Whether you bring your own, or rent once you arrive, cruising around Plett on two wheels offers a whole new perspective-plus, you’ll enjoy your dessert all that much more!
