Jungle FRIM XC KEPONG

No. of Reviews: 6

Breathtaking jungle sceneries, tight switchbacks, moderate hillclimbs. Can get slippery after rains. Occasional single-track mostly wide. Great for groups.

Trail Directions
Easiest is from (former) Hospital Kusta Sungei Buluh via KL-Kepong-K.Selangor Road. Pass hospital into garden/grass nurseries. Look for trail going uphill behind some houses on the right. Takes through FRIM(Forest Research Institute of M'sia) and exits at back of Taman Ehsan in Kepong.

good trail for all riders, beginner can take a shorter and easier trail.

Recommended Route:
Park car at the badminton court,start climb from the mosque and turn into the other trail to Sg. Buloh (DH),
after that take the same trail back and turn right to
up hill (about 600m),after that all the way downhill to
exit near Taman Ehsan.

Reviewed by: Joe , from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Summary:
The majority of the trails are broad 4wd tracks, but there is an excellent Kiara-esque section that shoots off the Rover track and joins one of the 4wd tracks leading back to the main gate and the staff quarters. This section was built for the Kayuhan Belantara race, but in my opinion is better cycled in reverse. There is a super steep section that is rideable in reverse (just) but which you'll have to portage if you do it the right way round.

Recommended Route:
The most popular is the Rover track, but there are lots of other smaller trails to explore.

Summary:
A good network of trails. Mostly fireroads with few single tracks. The Steroid Hill is one of the major attractions. A good place to start for beginners.

Recommended Route:
Park your car at the Sungai Buloh Hospital. Ride to the roundabout and take 9 o'clock towards the forest reserve.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bukit Kiara & RRI Sungai Buloh.

Summary:
I tried this route the other review and this week I continued from where we stop. We carry on the trail again and it was a bit slippery this morning. it must have been raining hard last night because we have to carry our ride over three fallen trees. The trail was slippery with the wet leaves and loose stones but it was FUN! We ride until we came to a fork and we took a left and another left when we came to another fork. It came to a dead end but the housing estate was in view. Double back and we took the other trail and it also came to another dead end.must have been the first right on the first fork bacause i can see the trail on the other hill from here. i think that leads to Sungai Buloh.The trails here are endless and we can only ride what we can handle.The trail are not that hard if you do try to show machoness, just follow the flow. If you can't ride uphill, PUSH! Save yourdelf a lot of leg sore later. maybe next week I will try the other trail.
Overall, it was fun and laughter for me and my wife ( only 2 of us)maybe because it was wet.We did 15 kms.off road and 10kms.tarmac.

Recommended Route:
depends on the individual or where or how long you want the trail to be.I do not have a transporter for my bike and I reside about 4 kms. from the area so my beat bet is from the main entrance.

Summary:
It was Tuesday and it is the only day where I can ride together with my wife and we started off as mentioned in this review.Went through the FRIM guardhouse, paid the RM1.00 and continued until I spotted the mosque. As mentioned went behind it and continued off-road.It was a long sloping uphill but I can't finish and have to push abit but the trail came to level and then we continued all the way pass a resting pavilion, a pumphouse (I think) and then we came back to a tarmac road.All in all the off-road was about 4.5KM. We felt we could continue so we went downhill instead off uphill at the tarmac road.Come to a road barrier and we spotted another trail on the left. This trail was more isolated because by the looks of the trail it was covered with leaves.We continued until it gets spookier
(there's only 2 of us,although the feeling is great under the trees)then we U-turned back and head back for the tarmac road. We took the tarmac road back to the guardhouse.By this time the cyclometer is already reading 12KM. Will try to continue on the latter trail if I can find more riders as mentioned by the other review cyclists is rare here.
