Rolling and technical multi-use singletrack so be prepared to step aside for people on horseback and/or hikers. Great view of the mountains and pine forests.

Trail Directions
Proceed to the Baguio Country Club Horse Rental area (right before the Camp John Hay gate). Take the road on the left, it's the only one that goes downhill. Follow this concrete road til it levels off and reaches a fork. Take the road to the right until you reach the doubletrack. Yellow trail, here I come!

Summary:
I attempted this route when i was there last week and i had a great adventure tracing the trail and ended up carrying the bike half of the way before reaching civilization. When i hit the double track dirt road (end of paved road) after turning right, i entered a run down trail where rain water passes in the middle of it two feet deep and practically not rideable. Since i have started already, might as well proceed further hoping that trail gets better. Started riding the bike after a few meters and it has an awesome view with pine trees all over. I hit an erroded part of the trail and tried to cross the perimeter fence of Camp John Hay and proceeded. Didn't realize that i took a wrong turn and the trail gradually becomes narrow, then a single track, then a foot path, then a steep downhill path to the point of carrying the bike all the way to a nearby community before hitting a minor road behind Texas Instruments Complex. From there you start the ascent all the way to the main gate of Camp John Hay. Sayang itong trail na ito. Would have been great if it were well maintained. It was obvious that nobody rides on this trial anymore because the grass has covered the trail.
This is my suggestion to the Baguio City mountain bikers: you can lobby to the management of John Hay and the local government to develop and improve this trail to attract more foreign riders.

Recommended Route:
I highly recommend this trail especially for tourist bikers if it were well maintained and safe. Local bikers just have to so something about this. Hope to see some improvements when i get back there next year.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bikers can try Mt. Sto. Tomas Relay Station. This is highly recommendable.
You can also try Ambuklao Road or the Halsema Highway.

Summary:
I got to follow the trail gong down from Back of BCC and reaching the fork, i took the right one (since the left was going down... down.. .down) The right trail started the fireroad trail. We took us about a kilometer and a half there is a curve. At the curve is a sign board and is usually housed by some rangers (ranger station) Then a person approached us saying that there is no way (pointing to the proposed direction that we are heading). So we did not proceed and return back. along the way, we encountered a pony boy riding his horse. we inquired if that areas is passable, he thought for a while and looked at our bike, then exclaimed " hmmm, think so, but you might have to carry your bikes in some trails."
WE thought of return and determined to pass by the place we have been stopped and sneak through. I don;t think its closed. JUMPMan, any other information that you might want to share?
