Woodcutters Journey down the Storms River Pass

Continuing with this week's series on activities in the Tsitsikamma.  The old Storms River Pass built by Tomas Bain in the 1880's following the elephant trails through the gorge is only accessible on foot or by bicycle.  The only other way to explore it is along with Storms River Adventures on their guided Woodcutters' Journey.
The tour follow the old pass down to the picnic spot next to the low water bridge over the river.  Along the way you pass tree ferns, stinkwoods, yellow woods and many other tree species, whilst hearing about the history of the area and the local flora and fauna.  You may even catch a glimpse of the elusive Knysna Loerie flashing its scarlet red feathers under its wigs as it glides between trees.
