The Kereita Forest at the southern-most end of the Aberdares Range has interesting hiking trails and natural features like the Kereita Caves and Waterfalls.
The walk through Kereita Forest Starts at the Carbacid Forest Gate. This general area sits on top of an underground natural CO2 reservoir mined by Carbacid Ltd. The hike goes through an exotic forest and descends into the first river valley giving way to an indigenous forest. Further on, the trail passes the Elephant Pool before arriving at the Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River.
The Return path retraces part of the trail out of the valley to the top of a ridge, before veering off on a north-bound trail into a bamboo forest. The path then climbs to the highest point of the hike presenting an excellent view of the Elephant Hills, Nairobi and Mt. Longonot.
