Trails - Hilly - New - Sightseeing - Trending

The mysteriously named Phantom Pass is the final pass on the Garden Route's string of "Seven Passes" between George and Knysna. The 7.4 Km of gravel road descends to the famously picturesque Knysna River Lagoon. Start your warm-up on the beautiful Thesen Island and then, going via the Knysna Waterfront, ride along the Knysna Lagoon until you get to the Red Bridge spanning over the Knysna River. If you are lucky you can spot shoals of South African mullet that traverse the river. The Red Bridge means you are ready to tackle the short ascent to the top where you can enjoy the views on the descent.
