Between Rhodes and Tiffindell?
Right area but wrong road. But close enough, I'll give it to you.

Naude's nek.

North of Cradock.

It's on a real backroad overlooking a small pass, who's name I can't remember, but there is another pass in the area. If you get either you win!

Only gravel road in that area I've done is the R391 NE of Hofmeyr, could be that but I'm not sure. This is the gravel road you hit when you come from Burgersdorp and reach the tar road crossing where you have to turn right to go to Steynsburg. If you go straight over you hit a gravel road that runs to Hofmeyr, it has a small pass but I can't remember the name now.

Close enough. There is a "farmers" road from Molteno heading east that intersects the R391 near Groot-Dorings Pass. The pic was taken on that road looking towards the R391 with Groot-Dorings on the right. Roughly here - S31.45338 E26.11735

Your turn.

Very cool, there are tons of back roads that I still need to explore.

Ok where am I riding?
