Following the launch, Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi explored the new hiking trails, together with the organising committee members.

Several other activities were also held, including the Wang Kamaaudin Challenge, peeling pineapple skins and traditional games.
