Five Reasons Why You Should Choose La Mesa Watershed

  1. Safe – the bike trails are properly maintained. Unwanted plants and grasses are removed from the path allowing you to clearly see where you should go. Signs, symbols and directions are strategically placed so you would know where to go.
  2. Secured – The whole forest itself is properly guarded. No outsiders are allowed to enter the forest. Only those who registered are permitted to roam around accompanied by a trail master and a sweeper.
  3. Fresh Air – if you need some fresh air, specially if you are living in Metro Manila, La Mesa Watershed is a best source of fresh air. Remember, it is a forest.
  4. Environmental Contribution – your 200 pesos entrance fee will go to the maintenance of the watershed. This small amount is a big contribution to the environment. The trees of La Mesa Watershed absorb the excessive carbon dioxide in Metro Manila and replacing them with oxygen.
  5. Help is easy to get – if an accident occurs, you had muscle cramps, or too tired already, asking for help is just a radio call away. The trail masters bring radio with them to easily communicate with the admin from the entrance.

The single tracks of La Mesa can cater both beginner and hard-core mountain bikers. Whether it is a half-day or a whole-day of mountain biking you’re after, you can’t go wrong choosing this place.
