Built by Thomas Bain in the 1860's, the Prince Alfred Pass (R339) is a dirt/gravel mountain pass between Knysna/Plettenbergbay and Avontuur/Uniondale. It is a scenic route with spectacular views and interesting flora. Please note that this is not a shortcut from the Langkloof to Knysna/Plettenbergbay. Having been built about 150 years ago, parts of this historic pass is very winding and narrow. In some areas the surface of the road is eroded and there are a few potholes along the way.
