The walking trail follows a series of undulating ridges and the valleys between them. Our guide said it was only a mile and a half hike but it seemed much longer. However, there were frequent stops for identifying the various exotic plantlife and --- occasionally --- spotting an exotic bird.
The hike was a serious challenge for this 60-something flatlander --- the guide had to help me over several difficult spots --- but appeared to be only moderately strenuous for the others in our group, And despite my hurting legs I was damn glad I did it.
For people experienced in rough-terrain hiking --- or reasonably fit people who are aren’t embarassed to ask for help when needed --- I highly recommend this half-day experience. ($45/person, minimum of four.)
