Business name: Terblans Walk
CATEGORY:: Activities
Type: Day Hikes
About (Owner’s description): The Gouna forest comprises 3 450 hectares of indigenous forest and is home to the Terblans Walk. The forest is located in the Knysna section of the Garden Route National Park.

The circular, self-guided Terblans Walk is named for the Terblanz beech, known in Afrikaans as the Terblans. The tree is mostly found in the Southern Cape – in particular the Gouna forest.

The Terblans Walk starts at the Grootdraai picnic site and passes through a section of indigenous Gouna forest – the second largest indigenous forest tract in the Knysna area. The walk is relatively flat, except for the Rooiels River crossing, where the descending trail is followed by a steep climb. Just beyond the halfway mark at Witplekbos, a natural swimming pool offers the opportunity for a scenic break and refreshing dip.

Distance: 6.5 kilometres

Duration: 2 hours

Difficulty: Easy

Features: A wonderful natural experience of indigenous forest, groves of forest ferns and ancient Outeniqua Yellowwoods.

Permits: Self-issue permits are available at the start of the trail and entry fees are payable when the access point is staffed.

Maps for the walk are also available at the start.

Facilities: There are a number of picnic sites at Grootdraai, where the trail starts out and ends.
