The Touw River Pass forms part of the well-known 7 Passes Road in the Garden Route. The road was built circa 1883 by Adam de Smidt, the brother in law, of Thomas Bain - pass builder extraordinaire. This is a gravel road and remains virtually unchanged from it's original route, with the one exception that the original timber bridge was washed away. This was replaced with a steel bridge in the 1900's. (Source: Mountain Passes South Africa).
