TIP: Google Maps has two pins for Mount Longonot National Park. And as you guessed correctly, only one of them gets you to the gate. The right pin to follow is called “Mt Longonot National Park”.
TIP: There are no shops along the way, so please ensure to bring enough water and some snacks with you. Additionally, one-way plastic bottles and bags are not allowed in the national park, so make sure to use reusable bottles and bags instead. You can also purchase reusable bottles at the gate, which are reasonably priced at just a few dollars.
TIP: We would recommend to do the hike to the peak of the mountain first and then continue to circle the rim (counterclockwise). That way it's easier to monitor your pace and predict when you will complete the circle.
Overall, the hike to Mount Longonot was an awesome experience. The circumnavigation provides a chance to appreciate the geological formations that makes Mount Longonot a natural treasure. It was probably one of the most beautiful hikes we’ve done.
