The Nelsberg Pass is also known as the Nelshoogte Pass. It is on the R38 between Badplaas and Barberton in Mpumalanga.

This scenic pass is 12 km in length and rises 405 metres, from its lowest point on the eastern approach, to a height of 1544 metres.

The road is tarred and in good condition but it is fairly steep in parts with a gradient of 1:7.

The Nelsberg Pass road goes through the Nelshoogte State Forest which is a plantation of pine trees.
