    A huge private reserve which is easy enough to walk to from Monte Verde. There's a small fee to enter before hitting the trails, where you can pickup a laminated map and get some helpful advice from the staff there. We only encountered one other pair of hikers for three hours walking, which was excellent! We saw loads of wildlife including two rat snakes mating. The viewing platform at the furthest reaches of the trails was fantastic. Take some water and do the full circular route. Highly recommended trails.
