The Botanical Gardens is in a basin at the foot of the waterfall that gives its name to Waterfall Road. It was a favourite picnic spot in Penang’s early days. This trail loops around the ridge line that encircles most of the Gardens.

It takes in the two principal summits, one west, Cendana, the other east, Olivia. It has the advantage that one can come off the track in many different places, thereby shortening the route if desired. The full route is 10 kilometres, 4 hours (easy pace), earth tracks, clear to follow, 90% shade.
