Overview : 

One tree hill is a view point at Matheran, a small hill connected through a natural rock bridge. One can trek to this point from Ambewadi village. The trek starts with a gradual ridge climb with amazing views of Morbe Dam. After that you reach a big plateau with views of Irshalgad. As you move ahead you climb through rocky terrain and small waterfall to reach the top. From here you have a beautiful forest walk for an hour to reach Matheran market. One can shop and have some snacks around here and explore. From Matheran market you can walk across the toy train railway track to reach Dasturi Taxi stand where the trek ends. This trek is a combination of ridge climb, lush green plateau, small waterfall and forest walk. It's an easy grade trek with no difficult climbing patches but the long walks and 2.5 hours climb need good fitness and endurance, can be a good trek for fit beginners.
