Many visitors to the Garden Route want to visit the Big Tree and not many know that there are in fact two of them! The one close to Harkerville and then the not so well-known one in the Woodville forest close to Wilderness. Chain Gang Events have liaised with the owners of the guest farm Beyond the Moon and SANparks to lay on two trail routes (8 km & 12 km) that both include a viewing of the Woodville Big Tree. These trails will form part of a future trail series, so be part of the inaugural group trail runners to enjoy these routes for the first time.
