Bataan WW2 Death March Trails

Average Rating:    (4.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Uphill ride is along smooth single and double tracks as long as you have the heart,lungs and legs for the 14 kms kilometer stretch. You'll not run-out of time if you do some walking, but, watch out for the mid-day sun as most of the uphill portion trails are open and cut though tall cogon grasses. Down hill ride is long and technical, thus, riding on light dual suspension MTBs will be a plus. Some excellent scenic view. Just fill those hydrapacks with food and gallons of water! Total riding time is 4-6 hrs, depending on skill level.

Summary:
As MERX described it, GRABEE! But the long uphill was rewarded with a 15-20km technical downhill. Pack enough water, food and a digital camera to capture those scenic views,.. some nice technical photo ops too! It should be more technical during the rainy season. We plan to reverse the route and cool down at Dunsulan Falls.

Recommended Route:
Gapan-Ologapo Road, turn right at Pilar, Bataan -highway leading to Bagac/Morong. Follow the directions.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For XC Riders: Mariveles-Bagac 40 kilometers single track.

Summary:
It took us two attempts to finally complete the course. The long uphill and the long and technical, winding downhill once you reach the peak is an ultimate challenge for both free-riders and cross-country riders. Light FS bikes will definitely be a big plus. Breath-taking view of Bataan & Manila bay in most stops. This long network of trails is definitely a no-no for beginners.

Recommended Route:
Just follow the directions.
