The Tabin wildlife reserve consists of 11% of primary dipterocarp rainforest, while the rest is secondary rainforest. Overall the forest is not as nice as the forest near the Borneo rainforest lodge, mainly because the trees are not as tall and majestic as in the Danum valley.
A number of forest trails start and end at the Tabin wildlife resort. The shortest is 80m long, the longest 2.8km. The trails are well marked, i.e. it is possible to walk alone without getting lost, but the trail quality is not very good. I didn't see any leeches when visiting. The trails are limited to a small area at the western end of the Tabin wildlife reserve. Getting deep into the reserve either is not possible or requires special equipment and organisation.
