Start on a climbing challenge trail pretty difficult, then the trail became relaxing. I saw many wild animal, rabbits, deers and squirrels. The path is well marked and pretty well maintain. The first kilometre are in a single trail that could be slippery when it is raining.



Hiking trails where obstacles such as rocks or roots are prevalent. Some obstacles can require care to step over or around. At times, the trail can be worn and eroded. The grade of the trail is generally quite steep, and can often lead to strenuous hiking.
