About the hike
Kijabe Hill is located North West of Nairobi. This is the never-ending staircase challenge, the false peaks games at it best. We start off near the Mai-Mahiu Vumilia I.D.P Camp, taking every flight of the natural staircase in pride blessed by the beauty that is Mt. Longonot from behind. It's Kenton Hill snaking our way up enjoying natures beauty with awe. We go further up seeking more horizons and our efforts are rewarded with better views to the right Mt. Margret and Williams Hills and if its a clear day our eyes should see as far as Ngong Hills and Mt. Suswa.

At the summit of the Kenton Hill, we have Protected content views from the Aberdares to lake Naivasha to Mt. Longonot to Mt. Suswa..its all yours to take in. We go down aiming for the railway that slice the hill into halves we follow the rails for about 45 minutes then off down before reaching to the hot springs and to the tunnel commonly known as in local language as ‘Kamungu ka Nduma’ (the tunnel of darkness). If there will be no running water participants can try exploring the tunnel and therefore a flashlight will be of help. From the tunnel, the trek leads us to Kiharu one of the many hills of Kinale forest.
