Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

This is a 10km loop that going around the foothill of the Batu Kawan hill. The trail consists of undulating double track, 1.7km of uphill cement pavement and 4.5km of downhill single track. The climb can be overwhelming for newbies and physically less capable riders. But you will be rewarded by the fast and furious downhill after that 20min 1.7km climb!

Trail Directions
Easiest way is via NS highway, exit at Bukit Tambun exit. After the toll plaza, turn three o'clock at the roundabout. You suppose to see a flyover right after the roundabout. Cross it and look for the first left turn after the flyover. Go all the way down until you meet another roundabout again. At the second roundabout, turn at 12 o'clock. That should lead you to a single lane tarmac. Make a right turn and go straight. Make a left when you see a junction and follow the road all the way until you hit a dead end, which is at the foot hill. Park your transport there and enjoy!

This is an awesome 14km race track opened by the LBS, Vipers Cycle center of Bukit Tambun. Roller coastal ride, air gasping uphill, fast downhill and best of all kamikazee vertical cliff descent. You name it, the trail virtually has it! Five star from me. The best XC track I have encountered so far!

Recommended Route:
At the junction of the clinic, take left and follow the road til you meet a newly constructed highway. Turn left and follow the road until you hit the end of the road. Follow the laterite track, turn right and turn left when you see a small red Chinese temple on you left. The ball bearing ride starts there!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Juru firetrack, Ceruk Tekun, Sedim Forest Reserve.
