RouteEdit

The R67 begins in Port Alfred, at a junction with the R72 Road. It begins by going northwards for 54 kilometres to reach an interchange with the N2 National Route south of the Grahamstown town centre (renamed Makhanda in 2018). The R67 joins the N2 and they are one road eastwards for 9 kilometres before the R67 becomes its own road northwards.

From the N2 split east of Makhanda, the R67 goes northwards for 70 kilometres, crossing the Great Fish River and following the Kat River, to reach a junction with the R63 Road in the town of Fort Beaufort. The R67 joins the R63 and they are one road eastwards for 650 metres up to a t-junction, where the R63 becomes the road southwards and the R67 becomes the road northwards.

From Fort Beaufort, the R67 goes northwards for 97 km, following the Kat River up to the Katrivier Dam, bypassing the Waterdown Dam, to enter the town of Whittlesea. From Whittlesea, the R67 goes northwards for 33 kilometres to reach its northern terminus at a roundabout junction with the R61 Road in the town of Komani (previously known as Queenstown), just south-west of the R61's intersection with the N6 National Route.
