The Camp Aguinaldo mountain bike trail is a gift from the mountain bike gods for those living in the Quezon City-San Juan area. No longer do they have to drive or pedal to Maarat, La Mesa or Licao-Licao just to satisfy their thirst for some mountain bike action. Inside this military camp is a 2.54-kilometer playground composed of singletracks, jumps and switchbacks that will surely test one's mountain bike skills. What's great (or maybe not, depending on what you're looking for) is that there are hardly any climbs. That said, it's perfect for beginners who want to hone their riding technique and skills.
The trail is open every day (unless there's a red alert in the camp) from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Wear a helmet and bring water. The caretaker sells cold Gatorade but his stocks are limited. It would be best to reserve one before you hit the trail.
Taking photos and videos are officially not allowed.
P50.00 per entry

How to go there:
Coming from EDSA Ortigas area, take a right turn at Santolan Road and then turn right at the gate after 20th Avenue. (I think that's Gate 6, but I'm not sure). Go straight till you see a guard post.
Coming from C5, here's a map from Club 650 to guide you.

I would recommend this to newbies in mountain biking. Just start out slow until you get used to it.
If you're a biking newbie in general (meaning you've just learned how to balance and make left and right turns), I would suggest that you do more subdivision/village biking first until you're confident. Try riding in UP or Ateneo during weekends first. :)
then a photo album. nice one :)
Anyway, I think they allow photos now. This article needs to be updated soon.
