About A Short Hike

Follow the marked trails or go off into the backcountry on your way to the top. Meet other hikers, find hidden treasures, and take in the scenery as you go.

  • Go anywhere you want on the island. Follow the path you choose and see where it takes you. You never know what you’re going to find!
  • Hike at your own pace; you don’t have to hurry to the top! Take your time fishing along the banks of a river or swimming near the shore of a lake.
  • Find hidden treasures to go to higher levels. Try jumping off the tops of the mountains to fly over the forests.
  • Talk to other hikers you meet on the trail. You could each help the other out!
  • As you explore the wilderness, you can listen to a rich original soundtrack by Mark Sparling that changes in a dynamic way.
