Dogs No Dogs
The first half of the track is a fast, flowing descent with small drop-offs, humps, and moderately technical sections. But halfway through the track, the challenge ramps up as the rocks become bigger, turns become tighter, and the gradient increases to more than 20%.
The last 250 meters presents a short section with a 35% technical descent before the final push to a five-foot drop-off to the finish line.
There are bailouts on all jumps and drop-offs (usually on the left side) for those who want to stay on the safe side.
This track was created by some volunteers of SJC-MTB for the downhill race during San Jose City, Nueva Ecija's Town Fiesta (Pagibang Damara 2017). To get here, the best way is to contact anyone from SJC-MTB Facebook group and ride with them - they're a friendly bunch so just ask. If you wanna go at it alone, there are two ways to reach the trailhead. First and the fastest way is to hike the bike from the finish line. Go to Barangay Sto. Niño 2nd, Junior Campo and ask around. If you see the small Army camp, ask one of the soldiers, and they'll probably point you here. The second and longer way is to use the Villa-Floresta/Maangol route and go to the DENR Radio Tower - this involves at least an hour and a half of climb before reaching the trailhead.
