Mount Longonot is secured by Kenya Wildlife Service as a major part of Mount Longonot National Park. A 3.1 km trail keeps running from the recreation center passageway up to the hole edge, and proceeds in a 7.2 km circle surrounding the hole. The entire visit (entryway around the crater rim) of 13.5 km takes around 4–5 hours taking into consideration essential rest breaks - parts of the trail are vigorously dissolved and extremely steep. The park gate is at around 2150 m asl and the crest at 2780 m asl yet following the rugged edge includes significantly more than the 630 m vertical distinction.

If you would like to make Mount Longonot trekking day trip, then this would be a challenging activity. You can take Mount Longonot trekking as part of a fitness training for the 5 Days Sirimon Route Down Chogoria.

  • Chogoria route
  • Burguret route
  • Timau route
  • Kamweti route

Sirimon route is one of the least used Mount Kenya climbing routes featuring the a more gradual ascent profile offering the best acclimatisation possibilities. It passes through striking Yellowwood forests in the lower stretches, abundant wildlife and stunning alpine scenery higher up. From the head of Mackinder's Valley past Simba Col, Point Lenana at 4985m is reached.

Mount Kenya Naro Moru route offers the fastest ascent to Lenana Peak making it the most popular of all the main trekking routes. It is not a scenic route as compared to others and not suited for acclimatization due to its rapid ascent, unsuitable for climbers and hikers wishing to acclimatise gradually. It features the "Vertical Bog" which is a steep marsh of wet moorland which is particularly unpleasant and strenuous especially after rains.

Chogoria route is the most scenic of the three main mount Kenya climbing routes. The trail passes the captivating Hall Tarns looking down into the remarkable Gorges Valley and the stunning Lake Michaelson.
