Took us just under 2 hours to complete. Hard stair section at the beginning and at the end, with a few scrambles in some places. The middle section of the trail was pretty flat and quite pleasant. Would recommend this route up Penang Hill.

The stairs are a great workout.

This route should be taken out from search especially the path before and after Blue House because the path was abandoned for too long and we hardly can see a clear path. Thanks to the mighty compass that show us the way that helped to struggled out.

Gotta be careful of moving vehicles and stay on the side. Really steep and it was one workout session. At the top it's rather crowded. Since trail is very steep, gotta walk backwards at some point when coming back or you can walk zig-zag to prevent knees from hurting.

Very exciting and challenging esp the initial part of it.. Unable to reach penang hill due to the limited time I had.. Will go up till penang hill on my next visit to penang

I came down from the hill this way and I don't think I'd consider going up from here. It's almost all stairs and paved walkways. Not exactly a hike. It is tough though, if that's what you're after. Your knees should be in good form, and have plenty of water. You're going to need it.

Great trail! Recommended over the heritage trail unless you like suffering and your knees are in outstanding condition (mine are not). Straightforward route. Went up Moongate and came out from Heritage Trail---save all the stairs for going down. Total time in and out was 3.30 mins for 11+ kilometers. Your mileage may vary.

Can walk to a clean beach.

This trail is badly in need of some maintenance as there are numerous trees blocking the path which can make it quite tricky to get on the right track. The trail is extremely steep in places which makes it quite treacherous especially when descending

tarmac all the way great for jogging or a casual walk

Very exciting and challenging trail but it's important to bring 2 hiking sticks as the trail is full of leaves and less grip even you are wearing hiking shoes. Esp when coming down hill. Some parts of the trail is very bushy so, its recommended to bring a parang along as you can clear some of the broken branches which blocks the trail.
