Ambassador Kenny - Regular trail Ambassador Kenney - Tabaro

The Kenney trail is called as such in honor of Ms. Kristie Kenney, first woman to be US ambassador to the Philippines. Her and her family were the first to trek this trail. As the regular trail, it starts with a boat ride to Taal volcano island.


The trail starts at the foot of Binintiang Malaki on a volcanic beach. Binintiang Malaki is the cone that many people call "Taal volcano" when they see it from Tagaytay. This is actually only one the 47 cones and craters located on volcano island!

Most prefer this trail because it's not dusty, it's less crowded than the regular trail and it passes through a forest making the trek more comfortable and less hot. As it is the easiest trail on Taal volcano island, this path makes it child-friendly compared to the other routes.

After a 30-minute walk, you will reach the view deck. Please note that the volcanic activity can NOT be seen from this view deck.


The color of the lake changes often depending the current volcanic activities and weather. The photo below was taken when the water was emerald green.


The Vulcan point in the middle of the main crater lake. Notice the sulfur bands around the islet - an indication it is very much active!
