Whatever trail you walk along, whether it is a path through a topical jungle, a track over farm land, a route up a difficult slope, or a meandering trail that wanders leisurely around the contours of a hill, they all have one thing in common: if you are walking along it, you are not the first. Others have been there before you. It is they who made it a trail. What is the best way to find out where good trails are? How do you get to them? How best can you enjoy them once you're there?

When you walk the hills of Penang Island you will encounter others. Some will be going the same way - some faster, some you will overtake - while others will pass you in the opposite direction. I have yet to encountered a single walker who would not smile and reply to any offered greeting, nor willingly stop and help with directions or advice if asked. When in the hills one tends to be pleasant, and kind, and considerate. Or is it the pleasant, and kind, and considerate, who like to go into the hills? Whichever it is, if you want to become a socially pleasant and appreciated individual ... go for a walk!
Look up to the hills and that's what you'll see: hills, and more hills. Mostly with trees. The trails from a distance are hidden.
