Knysna Forest near Forest Edge
Jubilee Creek is an exquisite picnic area next to a forest creek deep in the Goudveld Forest, Knysna. With picnic benches, barbeque facilities, bins and toilets, this is a clean and simply breathtakingly beautiful area.
Ideal for either a secluded romantic picnic, or whole family fun. Kids can lose themselves in the joy of water play while parents can relax on soft grass in the shade nearby. There is also an hour-long walking trail that starts and ends at the picnic site, through indigenous forest alongside the creek (a part of the famous Outeniqua Hiking Trail) that leads past old gold-mine dug-outs to a small rock pool and waterfall.
This is a must-visit spot to replenish heart and soul. From the N2 between Knysna and Sedgefield, take the Rheenendal turnoff and follow for 11.5 km. Turn right at the Bibbieshoek sign and follow the road, through the Sanparks boom (Sanparks entry fee applies unless you have a Wildcard) until you see the Jubilee Creek fork to your left – just follow; you will know when you have arrived.
*** You will miss out if you do not make the effort to visit this incredibly beautiful, natural spot! The Forest Edge Jubilee Creek Knysna picnic site and Jubilee Creek walking trail is worth the effort – pack a picnic basket or take braai stuff and spend a day in Nature, with sun and water and green grass. Easily accessible from Forest Edge by car (or by mountain bike, or on foot for the REALLY fit and adventurous).
