There are several trails such as a rocky path, and steep and shelving slopes. You can choose a trail depending on your condition. There are some fields on the way where you can rest, have lunch and play ,so the whole family can enjoy. I was amazed to know that there is such a good place to enjoy nature in Osaka.
