It was cold,misty and very windy but we all had anticipated this. The group had different kinds of people with different capabilities so our party kept on spreading wide. The rangers/guides we had were really friendly. Made sure we finished in good time and the slower members were catered for.

There are 7 hills that are not too hard to climb. The third hill is the hardest due to loose rocks and heavy brush but it only takes a few minutes to make it through. The views are really great with a brown Rift Valley on one side and a green city of Karen on the other side. It should... More

good grounds and lake, watch out for weddings on weekends but scenic none the less. the road getting there could be tricky in rainy season but easily passable.

I am fit, due to doing many mountain walks, and I found this a good work-out in a more relaxed way, because it is long, but relatively easy walk. It is certainly worth the views - such greenness everywhere - it just looks so beautiful. And the air is very fresh after the pollution of Nairobi. Invigorating.

We started off at 7 a.m, it was cold and very very misty and only cleared up as we approached the other end towards Corner Baridi. The first three hills were hard but the rest more gradual. Lots of great views as well. All in all, great day hiking plan.

A great walk for a sunny day. Remember to bring plenty of water and sun cream. My advise is to start at the bottom of hill one and to continue until the very end. Climbing 3 hills and then returning back to the start is actually more difficult than climbing all 7 as hill 4 and 5 are quite easy... More

The first thing that strikes you as you come up the hill is the enormous size of the windmills.They look glorious in their white colour just littered along the hillside.The vire of the undulating hills on the horizon sits as real as a psinting with the hues of blue and green appealing to the viewer.The green grass offers a perfect...

From ngong town to the entrance. From there you can get a guide if you want. Any type of clothing will do here it's not like your running. Snacks,water and binoculars if you have. Enjoy every hill and take in the sights. Late afternoon it can get really windy so carry something to keep you warm
