February 9 @ 6:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free – KSh3,000

The trail’s name, “Place of Many Monkeys,” comes from the fact that it is close to one of the largest natural forests in Kiambu. This means that you will see monkeys along the trail. This new find in the Kikuyu escarpments is something to be fond of. You get to go through one of only 3 tunnels under the railroad, stand near a hidden waterfall, and walk on a scary log that is the only way to get to the other side.
