The Keytersnek Pass is one of several passes between Sedgefield and Knysna. As the Goukamma Pass ends, the Keytersnek Pass starts.

This pass is short, steep and dangerous. It forms a bravura section on the N2 in the Garden Route between Sedgefield and Knysna and brings the N2 lower in altitude by 166 vertical metres to end at the crossing of the Knysna River.

The views are of densely forested hillsides with beautiful views of the Knysna Lagoon once on the overpass.

The pass is named after the railway station of the same name, hidden amongst the trees just to the south of the apex.
