Millwood Mines Circuit

  • Time: 2½ hours
  • Distance: 6kms
  • Exertion: Light
  • Features: Historic interest, beautiful indigenous forest and mountains, old abandoned mine shafts in the kloofs and gorges.


A short easy but incredibly interesting walk with outstanding examples of mountain fynbos and moist high forest. The site where gold was first discovered in RSA in the middle of the Knysna Forests.

Explore old shafts in the forest nestled behind little water falls, listen to the famous loeries and then visit the old mining museum and original site the Millwood village. Nothing remains of the old village except some old restored mining equipment.

The forest has basically returned to it's original state and the forest slumbers peacefully in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains.
