The aim of these pages is to record our pleasure, encourage others to repeat or even improve the experience and provide sufficient information for locals and visitors to follow the trails from scratch. Hence, there are far too many pictures of junctions in concrete trails! These trails are best enjoyed in small groups of no more than half a dozen with eyes and ears wide open and mouths firmly shut. Several can be, and are, used by mountain bikers (indicated by @), but if you have a motorbike please leave it at home or park it at the start of the trail; definitely do not take it (as I have read on the web) on trails which are not sealed, they will rapidly degrade if abused in such a manner.

I strongly recommend using buses to get to the starting points and back from the end of these walks.
I have written a short guide to Penang's Buses for hikers although directions are included in individual hikes.
