(2hr:45m | 5.69km) The hike is circular but is easier to navigate taking the motorcycle track which is to the north of the Penang Hill Train Station. Parking is available in the parking garage (parkade) at the base of Penang Hill. Walk back along Jl. Bukit Bendera for a few hundred metres taking a left at the second street on your left (Jl Taman Cantik). Walk along Jl. Taman Cantik for a few hundred metres then crossing a one lane bridge, take the first left up a small lane. Continue uphill passing a small temple on the left (red in color). The small lane eventually turns into a motorcycle path used by hillside farmers. There are not many motorcycles on the path but do step aside as they approach. Continue upwards until coming to a junction then keep to your left. There are a few Buddhist shrines perched along side the hill slopes. At about 280 metres, you will eventually arrive at a fantastic site of Buddhist stupas which have been erected on stone outcrops by a group of enthusiastic monks. There is a path to the right which climbs and meanders amongst the numerous stupas along with a few structures which act as storm shelters and a meeting place. There are a number of places to sit in which to take in the incredible sites and vistas of this location. It is well worth spending some time in this area before heading down. The main path continues to the south and passes a number of junctions (keep left) as the path leads towards Middle Train Station. To the left and just below Middle Station the trial gives way to the entrance/exit archway of the Heritage Trail first constructed in 1890. The Heritage Trail is a long set of approximately 3000 steps which leads to the Penang Hill Station. Once reaching the bottom of the steps turn left along the small roadway then make your way past a large temple. Once reaching a parking lot you can take a short-cut to the Station by crossing the lot to the far side to locate the back entrance to the Station itself. The path emerges directly in front of the Penang Hill Station.
