NEW Video is up at my Youtube channel with a hiking guide to visit one of the most impressive rock that to me – still looks like a T-rex head – rather than a King Kong.
Starts at Youth Park and goes up to “The Gardens”. Then will continue on “Trail 39 & 45” (OpenStreetMap) before connecting to a more used “Trail 7 to Moongate” (OpenStreetMap). A short climb will reach a T-Junction and descending down to a small stream to Station 707. From there, a short steep climb and continue on an unlisted trail which will require jumping over a total of 3 small drains before reaching King Kong Rock. After that, the trail will connect back to “Trail 7 to Moongate” (OpenStreetMap) and goes all the way up to the Trail 5 — 39 “Highway”. It can be quite dense and confusing so GPX navigation, sharp eyes and experience is recommended before attempting this trail. #penanghiking #hiking #penanghiker #youthpark #botanicalgardens #kingkongrock #707 #station5
DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS TRAIL AFTER 5.30pm. Gets dark really fast.
