Biking in Manila: Fort Bonifacio Tracks (The Army Trail)

For those who are in Manila for a business trip and are staying in Makati City, this is the mountain bike trail nearest you. Located inside the Fort Bonifacio camp, this trail is about two kilometers long per loop made from about two lots inside the base.

You have two choices here: The easy trail and the hard trail.

It’s open on daily from 6:00 a.m..

You will need to bring a valid ID to get in the base. You're also required to wear your helmet at all times. I've yet to check if they bar foreigners from riding the trails because it's inside the base.

Fee:
P50.00 per entry

How to go there:
From Ayala Avenue, cross EDSA to McKinley Road, take a right at 5th Avenue and then left at Bayani Road. The entrance to the camp is on your left before the road turns left.

    1. Hi Ben!

      In all honesty, I don't know if there would be any issues with a foreigner riding the trails inside the base. Maybe you can ride it with a local that will serve as your sponsor?

      Don't worry, as this is not the only trail available for riding. You can ride the La Mesa Nature Reserve Trails or the IMBA-certified trails in Timberland, San Mateo, Rizal.

      Hope this helps.

    1. Sadly, no. You have to bring your own bike.

    Hi, where do we pay? Is there a booth somewhere near with proper signage or do we have to look for attendants or bystanders? Thanks.

    1. Sorry, walang bike rental dito. Kailangan mong magdala ng sarili mong bike.
