Hill Bank – Activities
The Hill Bank Field Station is surrounded by representative samples of three distinct major ecosystems: Sub Tropical broadleaf Rainforest, Wetlands and Pine Savannah. This of course makes the area unique and biologically diverse in both flora and fauna.
Presently there are five main trails each of which depicts various vegetation types designed for specific objectives and purpose. Numerous resident and migratory birds as well as wildlife sightings have been reported.
The Hill Bank Field Station has 5 trails to explore. These trails are:
For your safety, please remain on trails at all times. We are currently re-designing a map that can lead you on your way. Also, a large trail map will be located close to the main walkway for your ease of reference.
Most are in walking distance with difficulty levels from easy to difficult. Along these trails you will experience the majesty and complexity of the tropical rainforest.
A naturalist guide will accompany you on your forest jaunts so that your experience is a fulfilling one. However, if you are experienced and comfortable on your own in the rainforest, you can explore the trails at your leisure.
You must inform your naturalist guide or the Station Manager or any staff in their absence about where you are going so that we know your whereabouts at all times on the property.
Our tour guides are expert at identifying wildlife and plants and discussing environmental topics, the Maya civilization, and history of Belize among others. Also, you are invited to learn about and participate in the conservation work that Programme for Belize does in and around the RBCMA.
All overnight guests are invited to early morning bird and night walks. Guests staying multiple nights are also offered a night safari. Please make arrangement with your naturalist guide or station manager.
