Mt. Makiling Everyday #9

On duty this holiday season, this is all I’ve got, the view of Mt. Makiling.

Mt. Makiling trail. The UPLB is the most popular among the trails. To go there, you can take buses bound for Sta. Cruz, Laguna. Alight at Los Baños Junction. Take a jeep going inside the UPLB campus and ask if it will be passing by the College of Forestry. From the Forestry, the trail is the same road vehicles use in going up the mountain. Few meters from the entrance, there is a registration point. Still further is a dry riverbed called "Flat Rocks". At the midpoint, there are some stores, picnic grounds and the trail that goes to Mud Springs. The road-trail continues three-fourths to the summit. At the end of this wide trail is the place called Camp One which is a wide field where you can set up camp. From camp one, an hour hike on a foot-trail will bring you to the highest point, Peak Two. It can accommodate around 8-12 tents. There are also an un-established trails from Peak Two to Peak One and the Sto. Tomas Trail (as of now the San Bartolome, Sto. Tomas trail are almost established).
