Crocker Range National Park in Brief

The Crocker Range is a forest covered mountain range which stretches in a south westerly direction from Mount Kinabalu towards the Sabah - Sarawak border. It separates the coastal plains from the interior regions. Frequently shrouded in rain clouds, the peak rise to between 1200 - 1800 meters above sea and coastal plains. Formerly a forest reserve, the 1399 square kilometers area became a national park in 1984. It is the largest park in Sabah.

The Crocker Range is bisected by the Padas Gorge, through which swirls the mighty Padas River. The Crocker Range provides a vital water catchment area for communities in the foothills and plains to both the west coast and interior.

Previously, there was no road from the interior to the coastal town but only with bridle paths crisscrossing the hinterlands. These bridle paths took the villagers down to the coastal town, bartering for salt, matches and kerosene. These paths have since been known as the Salt Trail and used for this Crocker Range Jungle trek.
