Trekkers spruce up trail of Penang hills

After being closed for more than five weeks due to the movement control order (MCO), the hiking trails from Moon Gate and the Penang City Park leading up to the Point Five rest area became littered with leaves making it dangerously slippery for hikers.

On Tuesday afternoon, 20 hikers from the 916 Happy Hikers group discarded their walking sticks for the day and wielded brooms and rakes instead to sweep the trail from Moon Gate to the Point Five rest area.
