Hefty trees, exotic plants that sometimes can only be seen in plant shops and occasional rain-forest species in their natural habitat. All these and more can be seen while walking along a trail. Some trails pass through smaller ecosystems like forest swamps and grasslands.
Forest trails create important dynamics for forest communities. Their importance may be overlooked, but cannot be ignored. Instead of travelling on rivers or creeks, walking the trails can make a journey shorter. One handy aspect of walking the trail is that an individual can join a party at any point.
Trails do not only connect communities and important places, but act as aisles that give access to forest resources especially useful trees and plants. Just like humans, some animals do prefer a clear path to walk on, so trails are not only used by humans, but by animals too. Spotting an animal or two on a trail is likely, especially if the time is right.
Unfortunately, maybe because resources are not as plentiful as before, fewer people use the forest, so some trails are being neglected.
However, in Moraro, we recognise the importance of forest trails to forest communities and are giving them the importance they deserve. We are promoting them, particularly for getting between communities, especially for cohesion activities such as sharing.
Using trails regularly is a sure way to stop them becoming neglected.

Trails are used for different purposes, such as hauling a canoe.

Sometimes the sun can get very hot. This is where a sheltered trail comes in handy.
