Attractions and Activities
Hiking around Riversdale
The Sleeping Beauty hiking trail covers a distance of 13km from its start at the Toll House to the crest of Sleeping Beauty and ack. Views from the top are magnificent. The Kristalkloof trail measures 20.9km and is an easy to moderate 20 day hike. The trail starts in Kristalkloof (Garcia Pass) and will fascinate the Fynbos lover.
The town has a rich cultural heritage and the Julius Gordon Africana centre (1860) houses a remarkable collection of artworks by famous South African artists. The Old Toll House built in 1877 and now a national monument is situated in the Garcia Pass. St Matthews Anglican Church, a stone building erected in 1859, is situated in Heidelberg Road. The old jail, built in 1834, is worth a visit. Take a tour around the jail and experience the history around this building.
At the foot of the Sleeping Beauty Mountain Peak, a well loved landmark, Riversdale has earned its name as the Floral Paradise of the Garden Route, due to the abundance of indigenous Cape fynbos which covers the mountains and surrounding region.
