Kenton and Nathan Hill

February 19 @ 6:00 am - 4:00 pm

Get ready for an adventure as we embark on a challenging hike through the stunning landscapes of Gichiengo and Kijabe. This trail is not for the faint of heart – it starts with a steep descent through thick forest vegetation, following the railway line to the historic old town of Kijabe.
As we make our way along the route, we’ll be tested by the demanding terrain and the rugged beauty of the surrounding wilderness. But the reward for our efforts will be well worth it – at the top of Kenton Hill, we’ll be treated to gorgeous panoramic views that will take your breath away.
