Nevis Peak Park is actually the area surrounding the real Nevis Peak, a currently inactive volacno that is a prime spot for hiking and nature exploration. What is known as a particularly rough hike will take you along the growing incline and to the top, offering absoltuely pristine views as well as a bit of exhaustion.

The park is mainly a hikers destination, but with so much nature and peace, it is a good location for a quick escape too. However, those looking to complete the hike will be faced with a long and challanging adeventure through forests, rough terrain, and some steep climbs. Luckily, for those who are a little uneasy of the mass wilderness, there are usually some guides at the park ready to show people the way (though they may charge extra).
