Due to its remoteness and isolation the rainforest in the Imbak canyon has never been logged and is still quite unexplored, and has a number of species endemic to the area. The forest here is primary lowland rainforest with many very tall and old trees. From the studies centre there currently are two circular forest trails which are open to the public: a riverine trail which proceeds along the river, leading to the Belian camp and the Imbak waterfall and returning to the studies centre via the Bukit Imbak hill. The second trail is shorter and leads into the rainforest to a place where many Nepenthes pitcher plants grow.
