Hiking & Nature Walks

Forres Park — a rich birding paradise. Climb the trails around the house where quite a number of the 28 endemic species of birds can be seen.

Our on-site hiking trail up the steep hillside behind the main house and cabins is a site to behold. Climb through the coffee groves and fruit trees into nature’s natural forest. The climb is exciting and beautiful, but not for everyone, and we do recommend that you don't go alone. The trails offers subtle changes in habitat reflected by changing bird species.

Stripe-headed Tanagers and Jamaican Orioles frequent the shade-trees, and further up the hillside Ring-tailed pigeons appear. By the time you return for a superb breakfast (fresh fruit off the farm and real Blue Mountain coffee!) you will probably have seen at least twenty species. Some will even join you for breakfast. The network of trails around Forres Park can be used by hikers, some by bikers and some by four-wheel drive vehicles, offering a wide variety of mountain scenery, wildflowers, butterflies and birds.
