Garden Route National Park (GRNP) teams are preparing to co-host the third Garden Route walking festival, which is expected to kick off on Easter Friday (March 30).
The Park has 15 Green Flag status hiking trails, 12 in Tsitsikamma and two in Knysna. With this, GRNP continues to implement the certification programme for the rest of its trails. There are at least four multiple-day hiking trails that are not part of the Garden Route Walking festival, namely the Harkerville Coastal hiking trail rerouted after the Knysna fires, the Outeniqua hiking trail, the Otter trail and the Dolphin trail in Tsitsikamma.
There are 10 day routes in Wilderness, eight in Knysna and 12 in Tsitsikamma which are open for the upcoming Garden Route walking festival.
A conservation fee is payable at reception areas prior to exploring the walking trails – Wilderness, Ebb & Flow, Knysna and Tsitsikamma.
