Green Mountain Trail, Elgin

#2 of 11 in Trails in Overberg District
Learn about biodiversity on the recreational Green Mountain Trail, a four-day slackpacking trail in the Overberg region. The trail winds through finely woven fynbos and fruit farms with plenty of comfortable dining options and deluxe guesthouse facilities. Accredited, informed guides will tell you all about the life of plants and history of the area. After a stretch of the trek, you can refresh yourself by dipping into a rock pool or a dam. This moderate trail traverses private land, with all farmers being members of the Green Mountain eco-route, a biodiversity wine route.
