About the trail
I have to admit I was a bit disappointed driving through Ubud for the first time on the way to our hotel. I had been expecting beautiful tiered rice paddies and luscious green valleys but was instead confronted with busy streets and no sign of any greenery.

I was happy to discover that the gorgeous views I had seen in travel guides and online were simply hiding behind the busy shop-lined streets and it was relatively easy to get amongst it all to explore.
The Campuhan Ridge trail can be accessed off of the main road of Ubud (Jalan Ubud Raya) through the entrance to the Ibah hotel. There were signs leading the way to the trail over a river and past a temple. From this point you're on a single path that takes you along the Campuhan Ridge with great views either side.
2km in there are a few small shops selling local artwork and also a great little warung (eatery) where you can sit in a thatch roofed pondok over a lotus pond admiring the beautiful views over the nearby rice paddies.
You can continue on the path and loop back around towards Ubud centre but I believe this first section is the most scenic.
