As with other trails in Bulacan, i don’t see how you’re not going to enjoy this rustic but arresting trail route, loaded with interesting sceneries like wide vegetable plantations, farms and the ever present mountain ranges of the Sierra.
Though the trails are easy to follow during the first few kilometers of the route, it becomes more intricate once you venture inside the wooded areas as there are several smaller trails that branch out. This said, it can be easy to get a bit lost inside these trails.
The wide open spaces are breath-taking and relaxing and you won’t miss the post card scenes once you are atop one of the many mountain ridges.
This place in San Mateo, Norzagaray which borders that of San Jose Del Monte doesn’t have the usual falls we see often in other parts of Bulacan but if you’re looking for a relaxing yet somewhat challenging trail run, you’re here on the right place.
- The two wooden bridges that seem to have existed since the birth of our forefathers. Both are ancient but built of sturdy woods and reinforced by strong bamboo poles that can withstand any onslaught of a typhoon Yoling.
- The vegetable plantations and other wide areas of vegetation which makes for a relaxing run.
- The unlimited zigzagging trails of uphills and downhills
- Wild birds of different sizes and colors that whiz by on top of tree branches
- The mountain trail leading down to a valley over-looking Mt. Balagbag
- An alternative route to Mt. Balagbag although this is way longer than coming from Licao-licao. The trails here are more challenging and very secluded so be prepared to back-track a little to find your way!
