Rapid Adventures provides the the perfect opportunity at Knuckles to those who love to hike, mountain bike or explore local villages and discover waterfalls. Also within the range are endemic species such as the marbled cliff ford – nannophrys mamorata and the ceretphora tennenti lizard, which are only found in this area.
